Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper October challenge

Welcome to
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge

There are loads of challenge blogs around, but, as far as I know, there is a gap that needs to be filled:

A challenge that is always about using
Patterned Papers on cards

which is why I started

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge

I don't know about you, but I have enough patterned papers
to keep me going for a very long time

so let's make sure we use plenty of them

Today (4 October) is World Cardmaking Day, so a perfect reason to join in with a card today!

A gentle reminder: Please make sure you read the following (there are no other rules) because there have been a few entries creeping in where plain card stock has been used to cover the card blank with very little evidence of much patterned paper - after all, the whole idea of this challenge blog is to use patterned paper.

The monthly challenge will always be 'anything goes' as long as you cover your card blank or other creation with patterned paper or card, using any size or shape that you wish - there are no other rules! You can add embellishments if you wish, stamp, emboss etc - but you must cover your card blank with patterned paper or card. The creation can be for any occasion.

You can leave a small border around your paper when you adhere it to the card blank if you wish, but only a small border! And your creation doesn't have to be a card, it can be any project as long as it is covered with patterned paper.

You will be able to enter as many times as you wish during the month and link with as many other challenges as allow you to do so.

As I have an abundance of patterned paper - 12 x 12, 8 x 8, 6 x 6, A4 - I'm giving a prize each month to the randomly chosen winner. I'm willing to post anywhere in the world, so that means that anyone can enter regardless of where you live.

This is the prize for this month's challenge:

a Dovecraft curiosity corner 6" x 6" designer paper pack
72 sheet pack - 6 sheets of 12 designs

This pack has been opened because I used papers to make my cards for this challenge. The winner will receive a sealed pack because while I was buying a pack for myself I bought an extra pack to give away.

Please scroll down or click here to see the winner of Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper September challenge.
It's worth checking because it might be you!

I hope you will join in again for the October challenge and that the news will spread even further so that others come and join us too.
