Hello to a new Paper Playtime Challenge

Welcome to a new Monday and a new challenge at Paper Playtime. This challenge is all about using your patterned papers.
Ch #15 Use Pattern Paper
Begins: Today July 22
Ends: Sunday, August 4th
Sponsors: The Robin's Nest & My Craft Spot 
(Two great sponsors!!!)

I love buying paper..maybe a little too much.  This challenge was fun because I went right to a stack I love DCWV Spring Fling and selected different papers to play with.  I trimmed and joined the different patterns together and added a strip of burlap to create the base. I went back and added some gold ink around my flag and an additional pink layer with a stamped image from Pink By Design
Once the base was how I wanted it I went looking for the perfect sentiment for my empty space.  This lovely "hello" cut with the butterfly is form the Lyrical Letters Cricut cartridge. After I put my blue layer on for the butterfly I decided I actually wanted it to sparkle so on went some Baby Blue Stickles.
Once this cut was on my bag I added four pearl stickers to the corners and a pink ribbon to finish my gift bag.  I do not know what will go inside or who it will go to because I am a little in love with the whimsy of the bag!  Please join us this week and explore your patterned papers with Paper Playtime.
