Patterned Paper

Most people in the stamping/card making world do not like to use their patterned least all the Stampin' Up people I know are like that. We don't really consider ourselves hoarders but are addicted to buying designer series paper a/k/a patterned paper. We think it's too beautiful to use and every year new is introduced and old is retired. Thanks to Crafty Hazelnuts Challenges I have been using some of mine and today is no exception. There are over 300 entries in her March 2017 non-Christmas patterned paper challenge!

The DSP on the front and the strip on the inside is Timeless Elegance, which was retired last year. I colored some of the flowers with a Calypso Coral marker. My colors are Calypso Coral, Basic Black and Very Vanilla. The name of this fold is "Peek A Boo" and was inspired by Tami White. The sentiments are stamped in Calypso Coral using stamps from Bella and Friends, along with a couple from My Paper Pumpkin kits. The flowers were die cut with Botanical Builder Framelits. The name of the DSP on the envelope flap is Wildflowers and is also retired.

I have also entered it in the Flower Challenge #6

Thanks for looking!
