#26 Butterflies + P is for Patterned Paper

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

Winners results for #25 are in the post below

Each challenge will  be a different letter of the Alphabet.
It will always be Butterflies but with the addition
of an item/theme beginning with a chosen letter.
The twist is that my Guest Designers
will choose which letter goes next and I will supply the theme.
They will also be commenting on your entries. 

Please give a warm welcome to my next Guest Designer.


Andree Clark
(Winner of #23)

Andree has chosen the following letter for you.

#26 Butterfly/ies + P is for Patterned Paper.

Design of paper can be any pattern you like
and you are free to use other embellishments as well.

Hello, my name is Andree and I live in Maidstone in the UK and work in a local school office and so lots of my school holidays get spent in my craft room.
I am married and have two wonderful children in their early twenties which makes me feel really old.
I’ve been making cards for the last 10 years and I love both digi and rubber stamps and colouring with  Promarkers.  I also have a bit of an addiction to pretty papers-like most crafters I have far more than I could ever use but just can’t seem to help myself.
I started my blog ‘Aloha Cards’ a few years ago mainly to keep a track of the cards I was making  but then I discovered so many other wonderful blogs and challenge blogs and I now have lots of crafty blog friends.
My husband made me a craft shed in the garden which was lovely but a bit cold and lonely in the winter. My daughter has recently left home so I have taken over her bedroom with my craft stash and I am loving being able to craft in the house now.
I’d like to thank Mrs A for this opportunity to be her guest designer for this challenge, and I’m very proud to take part.

Here is Andree's card.


Isn't it georgeous!
 I love all those different papers and the way
they have all been stacked on the card.
I keep seeing something different every time I look. 

You will find all the details on Andree's blog  Here

  1. Thanks for starting my day off with a smile. I like the idea of patterned paper and have plenty to choose from, so hopefully I will get a card made again this time. I love the two inspiration cards. Both are so different but equally lovely. Kate x

    I love your card and how you used the acetate (I may have to borrow your idea as I have some acetate that I've never used!!)

  6. Great theme! I can handle this one much easier than hexagons (now watch me go make patterned paper hexagons for this). Fabulous sample cards!
