A card I made....

... for a Papertrey Paper Dolls challenge.

I've been following the Papertrey Paper Dolls blog for while now, but this is my first time participating in one of their challenges. Challenge #43 was to use newspaper style "paper" (but not text) on a project.

Well, I'd seen this challenge the other day but didn't think about it too much, because I didn't think that I had anything like that in my stash.

Well, I was wrong. (Shocking, I know!) I was digging through my scraps and here was a piece of green patterned Echo Park patterned paper that had newsprint on the back AND the red polka dots.

So, here's the card I made using one single piece of patterned paper:


I also used Papertrey Ink cardstock (stamper's select white), stamps (from my new Iconic Images set) and die (Mat stack #5.)

Thanks for looking!

Great card. I like how you cut out the bird on the branch.

Fun card! Very different elements, but work together so pleasingly (if that's a word?) ;)

Beautiful, Leigh!! (my 8 y/o...the crafty one...just about jumped out of the bed when she saw your card - "that card is so pretty!!!") I'm sure she'll be CASEing it.

Leigh this card is perfect for Kristin's challenge! How great that you had this on hand. I love the pop of color in the paper. So glad you joined us Paper Dolls!
