Papertrey Pals April Challenge

Patterned Paper.  Who doesn't have a huge stash of it lying around?  I love it, buy it and then hoard it like it's gold!

Liz issued the challenge this month over at the Papertrey Pals.  We had to create something that incorporated at least 3 patterned papers.  It was difficult to make the first cuts on those pristine 12x12 sheets but once they were made I had a fun time.

This Birthday card is for the neighbor girl.  The polka dot and plaid papers are old.  I know I bought them at JoAnn's but don't have a clue as to what company they are from.  The pink flower was cut from the DCWV Stack 6.

The Lemon Tart background flower and numbers were embossed using Darice Embossing Essentials Polka Dot.  I really like the different size dots that are created.  I did not purchase this at the link above.  It came from a local store, Pat Catans.  

The butterfly ribbon is my favorite part.  It is also Darice and from Pat Catans.   I found it in the clearance bin last fall and have been patiently waiting for spring to arrive!

For color, I added some of the polka dot paper on the inside.  Then,  I detached to top and bottom of the ribbon on three of the butterflies and used them to break up the sentiments.  

Well, a need to give Liz a big Thank You for challenging me to use my paper.  
If you have a stash, dive in and play along.

Thanks for stopping by ~

Wow! So vibrant and full of life. I am another "covet your paper like its gold" kinda gal too. I will go as far as hand stanp a patterned background to save on cutting my precious DP. Tragic I know! I am so proud of you for using yours. This card is so pretty and sure to be cherished by the recipient.
