Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper February challenge

It's time for another challenge on my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper blog - I hope to see you there during February with your creations using some of your patterned paper.

Why is it that I have stacks of patterned paper (the reason why I started the challenge blog in the first place ... to try and use more of it) ... and then I still go out and buy more? I recently bought some Docrafts Papermania Capsule Collection Parisienne Blue papers ... two packs, one for me and one to give as a prize for Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper February challenge - you've got to be in it to win it ... the winner will be randomly picked.

For my card I used a variety of papers from the pack of Docrafts Papermania Capsule Collection Parisienne Blue with some matching washi tapes, an accordion flower with button and a birthday sentiment. The stamped image is one of my favourite Penny Black stamps 'letters and flowers' inked with memento Paris dusk.

I based my card on the sketch given for Papertake 'take your pick' week:

This is also for:

Seize the birthday: anything goes
Dare to be sassy Thursdays 266: keep it the same - monochromatic
Penny Black January: new (plenty of new papers and washi tape used)
All kinds of cards 121: stamping
Penny Black and more at Allsorts February: anything goes except a digi (I used a Penny Black stamp)
Stamping sensations February: anything goes
Glitter n sparkle 122: anything goes
Sisters of craft February: anything goes


  1. Gorgeous card and l love the sketch you used x

  2. This is so gorgeous Hazel. Love all the blues. I find this capsulle collection very beautiful and I too have way too many patterned papers. Especially since I most of the time make my own background papers. Can't hold back in buying them either ;-)
