1 Design - 4 Challenges


I wanted to play along with the latest Lawnscaping challenge to use patterned paper and I thought this tree from Critters in the 'Burbs would be perfect to paper piece.  As I started looking at patterned papers I realised that I could use the design for a few other challenges as they each required using a different type of pattern.  


CAS-ual Fridays wants us to use polka dots in our designs this week and I found this green polka dot paper that would be perfect for my tree.
Over at the Moxie Fab World Cath has several challenges on the go including the Gingham Challenge...
...and the Damask and Brocade Challenge.
They would make a cute set I think although maybe with a different sentiment.  I'd feel bad for anyone who missed that many people that they had to buy "Miss You" cards in bulk!  


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  Craft supplyStamps:  (Tree and tire from Critters in the 'Burbs) Lawn Fawn, (Sentiment from Simple Salutations) Market Street Stamps
Inks: (VersaFine Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko, (Basic Grey) Stampin' Up


Die:  (Die-Namics Fresh Cut Grass) MFT

Very sweet design, and how nice that you could participate in 4 challenges with your card. I do like that paper pieced tree.

These are super sweet! Nice assortment of patterned papers. Yes, if you were giving them as a set, you might have to mix up the sentiment a bit... :D

Wow, look at you go! Love the different variations of the same card with the different patterned papers. Hope you have a great week!

so sad, but such an awesome design to use all those gorgeous patterned papers with ... glad to see you are actually using your patterned paper stash today as opposed to making your own ;)

University students :) I feel bad for them anyway ;)
Awesome design, and I love the paper-piecing & perfect layout! I have to remember to link up some more with the MFW challenges - I should write them down in my book again to remember! Duh!

These are so cool! How neat it would be to look outside and for real see a polka dotted, gingham or damask tree!
