Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper August 2016 challenge

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper August 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:

Rose Garden Creations A5 paper pad
32 sheets
with 4 x 8 designs
200 gsm

I used papers from this range for my own design

July challenge.

It's worth checking because it might be you!

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