Last week Nadine posted a new challenge on the Papertrey Pals blog. She challenged us to use patterned paper. I love to use patterned paper and Nadine already mentioned that I don't seem to have any problems using patterned paper. She's right. I don't find it difficult at all. If you have a hard time combining different papers I recommend you use various sheets from one collection. Usually a collection has about 6 (or more) different sheets of patterned paper, and the designs and colors go really well together. If you would like to challenge yourself a bit more you can either mix various collections from one manufacturer or you can mix patterned papers from various manufacturers.
For this card I combined papers from Fly a Kite and The Thrift Shop from October Afternoon together. I made this card for the youngest daughter of friends who's celebrating her 5th birthday today.
