Patterned Paper Challenge

The Do You Stack Up challenge blog has a new challenge starting today.  At least I think its a challenge.  We are to use patterned paper on our project.  Does anyone NOT use patterned paper on everything?!?  Oh, its just me...I see.  It may be a challenge for some, but sure to be fun!

Okay, on to the important stuff.  Prizes!


Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps is one of our 2 sponsors this week.  They have loads of digital images from many artists in their shop and all manner of digital products.

Stitchy Bear is offering a $10 Gift Certificate to the lucky winner!  Wow!




Black Leaf Studios is our other sponsor this week. They too have all kinds of printable digital items and even die cutting templates.

Black Leaf Studios is giving the Sweet Cupcake Digi Stamp Set to our lucky winner.  A whole set! Check it out!







I used Stitchy Bears' Sparkle image for my contribution this week.  And taking a cue from this cute fairy's name, I added lots of glittery sparkle.  You can see some of it in the snippet photo up top.
I have Sparkle in a bubble setting on a leaf surveying her domain.  She's making sure her sparkling butterflies are visiting every flower.  And yes, she is green!  With purple glitter hair, just like me.  Ha! My pattern paper is Dove Craft's 'Wild Blossom' by Kate Knight.  I colored Sparkle with Prismacolor pencils and OMS before using Ranger's Stickles on her.
I hope my fantasy card helps inspire you.  That is what its all about.  I hope you will enter DYSU's challenge and I can't wait to see your entries!

Oh PeggySue, this is FABULOUS!! I adore the patterned paper you've used - it's a work of art itself and definitely deserves not to be covered up (I always cover up most of my papers, LOL!). I love how that sweet fairy it standing on the leaf. Gorgeous card!! Hugs, Sem x
