Fly Away With Me
I am always impressed by crafters who manage to find patterned paper that works perfectly for a challenge. I decided to give it a whirl this week and went on a hunt for some paper for this week's Play Date Cafe challenge. I thought I found a pretty good match with this paper from 7 Gypsies but looking at them together on the screen they're not quite right. I usually print out the inspiration picture and take it to the Craft Cave with me. Clearly I've either got to get a laptop for the Craft Cave or a new printer as my printed colours are not matching what's on the screen. Grrrr...
Even if the colours aren't quite right I still like the card and I had fun going through all that patterned paper! Besides sets of paper I also have a lot of miscellaneous paper from buying bulk discount packs of random papers. It seemed like a good idea when I was buying it but I realise now it's difficult to find other paper to match it with. I was pleased to finally use a sheet! LOL! Gives me hope that the rest may find it's way onto some cards eventually. :)
