Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper April challenge

It's no April fool that already a quarter of the year has gone and here we are starting the month of April. That means that there is a new challenge for Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper - please click on the link to see the wonderful variety of lovely designs by my team, all using patterned paper in their own creative styles. We hope that you will be able to join in our challenge this month - all you have to do is create a design using some patterned paper in some way ... and you can enter as many times as you like ... and, as usual, there is a prize for the randomly chosen winner.

A while ago I bought a box of Crafter's Companion Downton Abbey papers and all sorts of elements - I was able to make quite a few cards for a sale that was held here to raise money for Admiral nurses for people with dementia and their carers. This is one of the cards I made. The only thing that was added was the peacock which was cut out from a paper from Tiger (I wish I had cut out the white bit between the legs, but I didn't ... so it's too late.
