Crafty Catz #495- optional twist- use pretty papers

Good morning, once again it's Friday...another week just flown past...and time for a new challenge at Crafty Catz. This week it's  our very talented Janette's turn to choose the optional theme for us to use,  she picked 'use pretty papers'. I think it's probably safe to say that most of us have far more papers than we'll ever be able to use, so a great choice Janette!

Our lovely sponsor this week is Little Blue Button

I made a card with a very simple matted design using a sweet sponsor image, Charlie on the Swing, she's coloured with copics and I've paper- pieced her dress. The papers I've used are from LOTV, sadly no longer available.
So, dig out those pretty papers and put them to use- come and play along with us this week- if you're looking for inspiration just click HERE to see what the team have come up with this week.
Thanks for visiting, hope you have a happy weekend.
