Paper Dolls Challenge #37-Patterned Paper

As a member of the Paper Dolls blog group, I try really hard to participate in as many of our challenges as I can. Being a bit OCD, I prefer to complete each challenge in order.

When Suzanne challenged us to use patterned paper on everything except the card base, I have to admit that I panicked! I love using patterned paper on my cards, but I don't have Suzanne's talent for mixing and matching them. 

That challenge was issued 6 weeks ago! After many nights of flipping through my dozens of card magazines and visiting my favorite blogs, I was finally able to put something together.

Here it is.

I used Frutti Tutti, Bitty Box Basics, Bitty Dot Basics, and Sugar Plum. The sentiment is from the Think Big Favorites series.  I used a fine marker to add the frame.

Now, I'm ready to tackle the next challenge from Sara:  Make a Wedding or Anniversary card.


  1. I love it!!
    It all comes together so beautifully!
    All those patterned papers...
    perfect together!! :)
    And Suzanne is the master of pp...isn't she?
    I envy how she makes it look so easy...
    but you did too!!

  2. This is a great card, I love how clean and fresh all your card look.

  3. Michelle, this is so adorable! I have not yet been able to play with my fruits collection, but I love how you die cut the apple out of patterned paper, so I am gonna try that!

  4. I love how you've used these papers! I adore the way your sentiment fits in the box opening......a perfect touch!

  5. Michelle, you did terrific with this challenge!! It is GREAT!! Love how you combined all the patterns while not overdoing the card!

  6. I LOVE this! Such a great combination of papers....they come together so well! I like that you used both big and bold patterns as well as the finer paper.

  7. Yay, great job! That frame you drew is a little bit of perfection, and how cool that the ric-rac follows the PP so nicely!

  8. WOW, you rocked this one! I love this! :)
