Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper April challenge

I was so overwhelmed by the number of entries for my Patterned Paper March challenge - over 600 - no, that isn't an April fool! If you haven't yet discovered this challenge blog that I started at the beginning of the year, please click here for the April challenge and join in. The monthly challenge will always be 'anything goes' as long as you cover your card blank or other creation with patterned paper or card, using any size or shape that you wish - there are no other rules! You can add embellishments if you wish, stamp, emboss etc - but you must cover your card blank with patterned paper or card. The creation can be for any occasion.

You can leave a small border around your paper when you adhere it to the card blank if you wish, but only a small border! And your creation doesn't have to be a card, it can be any project as long as it is covered with patterned paper.

For the beginning of the April challenge I've made two quick cards using Hunkydory patterned card and Kanban bottles and glasses.

The bottles and glasses stickers have a holographic look with colours that change according to the light. It was difficult to get photos, so I had to tilt the camera:

This is the second card - there is hardly any light shining on the bottle and glass here:

But here you can see the holographic bling look of the bottle:

These are also for:

A song in your He{ART} 3: celebration
Make my Monday: one for the boys - think either card would be OK to give to a man
Clear it out: boys/men + stash: stickers
Simon says Monday: the one with lots of rules - anything goes
My craft creations: anything goes
Craftin desert divas 28: anything goes
Sister Act 50: anything goes
Just keep on creating April
