DYSU Challenge #55

Good morning Bloggers,
We had some gorgeous entries for last week's challenge over at Do You Stack Up and it is official - we all love pink!! This week we want to see PATTERNS!!  Whether you use patterned design paper or create your own, we want to see some colourful creations. 

Our sponsors this week are:

My Little Shoebox - Surprise Goodie Bag

Copic Marker Scrapbooking -  6 Copic Ciao Markers (North/South America) Martha Stewart punch (rest of the world) 

This week a few of the team got to use some really fun digi images of owls from Copic Marker Scrapbooking on our projects and this is what I came up with.  Once again, I am so sorry for the lousy picture, I really am having problems at the moment getting good ones :0(  This card is much brighter IRL.   I kept it quite simple and went for some paper piecing to match the background papers and a punny sentiment!!!

and this is the inside - the colour is a bit better on this pic!!

Papers - Nitwits "Thimbles & Threads"
Sentiment - generated on my computer
Ribbon and googly eyes - stash.

So now it's over to you. Do take a look at the great creations from the rest of the team and join in with us for this great challenge. We all have patterned papers after all!!

Thanks for looking.
Denise xx

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Party Time Tuesdays #51 - Happy Brithday

Your not alone with the photo problems Denise. I've just spent the best part of an hour trying to get decent photos of a few cards and despite some sunshine, the colours are awful.

This is a really lovely card ad super paper piecing, one of my favourite techniques.

Thanks so much for joining our Monochromatic theme at Stampalot Challenge this month, good luck and hope you will join us again.
