Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper January challenge

It's a new month of a new year and time for Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper January challenge - please click on the link to see the beautiful designs by the rest of the team - and we would love you to join in our challenge - to enter, all you need to do is to use some patterned paper on your creation.

This is the card I made for John's birthday (30 December - one of those awkward ones that's too near Christmas!). I used a piece of Donna Ingemanson's rough & tumble across the middle, the other papers from Amy Butler's faded china - all by K & Co - I've had these paper pads for years so it's about time some got used!

I based the card on the sketch given for Sweet Sunday sketch 300:

using an 8 x 8 card blank.

The sentiment label is from Kanban, other bits and pieces from stash.
