Using Patterned Papers!!!













Wee Memories challenge is to use some Patterned Paper and its something I have loads of,  I can't go into a craft shop without being tempted by some gorgeous paper or paper pads!!  The trouble is I get them home and often can't bear to use them, so they sit in my paper box for ages!

 I decided to do some paper piecing and used this cute Christmas Tree from Hero Arts.  I have taken this close up so you can see the shimmer in the background as it doesn't really show in the main photograph.

I really had some fun with this card and used lots of pieces of paper.

I am very excited as we are off to Bristol tomorrow for our DD's Graduation ceremony, I have a new outfit and the weather looks as if its going to be fine, so it should be a great day. I will post a photograph later in the week!

Hope you all have a good week.

Hi Sally, gorgeous card!!
Tell me, I'm looking for these 2 oval Nestabilities and I'm a bit confused about which ones to order (large or classic oval? petite scalloped large or not?). Could you give me the references of yours, please? Thank you so much! Have a merry Christmas!
