Five Patterned Papers! - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Happy Friday!

It's been a wonderful final full week of the Easter holidays. My Dad has been to stay and we managed to do various activities to include the park, feeding the ducks, a visit to Greenwich, the Emirates Cable Car and the o2 Arena.  I am totally deflated after that lot but it was such fun!

On to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge this week. The dare this week was set by Miri who requested we use at least 5 different patterned papers from our scrap box with a bonus if they were Spring related. Well, I jumped at this one. I've been using the Dovecraft Blooming Beautiful paper pad for my demos and I had a lot of scraps so I set to work making my version of a sunburst card with the scraps. 

The papers in this collection are vibrant and all coordinate so well.  I used a wooden frame, sentiment sticker and pretty paper roses from the same collection to complete my card.

You can see my fellow DT members' creations HERE.  I hope you'll join in as I'd love to see what you come up with.

Enjoy your weekend!
