I welcome you to Wednesday!
Firstly, there is a fun new challenge in Blogland called the Butterfly Challenge. It is owned and operated by a friend of mine, affectionately known by all as Mrs. A. The first challenge is to use piglets and flowers on your card. Wait. What? No, no, that can't be right, not piglets. I was thinking of my friends at Pooh Corner again. It's butterflies, silly, we are to use butterflies and flowers!
Here is my card:
You can see a little better in this photo just how glittery it is IRL. The patterned paper is already embossed and glim-glammed, but I did add a few more highlights to the flower and butterflies with my Sakura glitter pen because I couldn't help myself.
I will be doing more and more of these patterned paper cards rather than leave my collection languishing in drawers. There's rarely white space because of the pattern so shall I make it a new movement? Will you bring out your patterned papers and let the pattern be the star of your card? In our card-making world already brimming with acronyms (partly my fault) should we call this style QSP for quick, simple, and patterned? CAP for clean and patterned? Or shall I make this a series? We have QACAS, shall we add QASAP?
Aacck, no more aacckronyms!!
Update Alert: Thanks to Mrs. A., I have learned that the craftiest hazelnut of them all has already started an entire patterned paper challenge blog!! Yippee! Great minds! Thank you, Hazel! I am entering my card in Hazel's challenge and I hope you will, too! You can find it here: Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge!
