Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper May 2016 challenge

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper May 2016 Challenge

A challenge that is always about using
Patterned Papers

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

You may enter any creation on which patterned paper/card has been used - you are no longer required to completely cover the creation with patterned paper, as long as you use some on your creation, obviously the more, the better.

You may 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

Dovecraft's Cupcake Boutique
6" x 6" Designer Paper Pack
72 sheet pack - 6 sheets of 12 designs - 150 gsm

(The winner, of course, will receive a sealed pack that hasn't been opened)

Before showing the designs of the team, I sadly have to tell you that Jan has had to step down due to family commitments - we will miss you Jan, but hope that you will occasionally be able to find some crafting time. I'm pleased to say that Helen is joining us as a guest for May and June.

And I am so glad that Lynne's health is improving enough to get back to some crafting and back here on the team - welcome back, Lynne.

Here are the Design Team's inspirations:


Using some glittery striped paper from my stash,
 and a Bugaboo image and sentiment "Girl Fairy Dust"
