April Card Challenge -- Updated with Winner

Post by wimom » Wed Apr 01, 2020 2:35 pm

And the $5 GC winner is Number 1, Traveler! Thanks to all who played along!
----------------------

The challenge for April is to play with your patterned papers. You also have a sketch option.

Option One:  Make a card using at least four different patterned papers.

Option Two: Use the sketch below, which was inspired by a recent Becky Fleck page sketch that I just loved (here) and adapted to work as a card sketch. It’s a great sketch for using scraps. And remember, the sketch is just a starting point -- angle or overlap the strips, changes sizes and adjust elements as works for you!

Option Three, for a bonus: Use both the sketch and at least four different patterned papers.
----------------------------

Here's my sample:

The rules:-- You may submit only one card this month. If you use the sketch, please tell what part(s) of the sketch you incorporated.
-- Open only to new, paper cards (no digi). 
-- Post to this thread by 11:59 p.m. April 30.
-- You may combine with one other monthly challenge if that challenge allows, plus the motivational challenge.

A $5 ACOT gift card will go to one Cherry via the random number generator. Please ask if you have any questions.

Boy I struggled with the 4 types of patterned paper but I love it. I used the sketch and the 4 pattern papers. From the sketches I used the pattern paper as the base of the card and used the strip idea. This is for my daughter and some in law so I love the male and female bunnies. Thanks for the SHOVE out of my comfort zone! So fun!!

Here's my card.  I used four patterned papers and the sketch for the bonus.  I flipped the sketch on its side, and used fewer paper strips to accommodate the smaller A2 card size.

Combined with MV #5: four patterned papers
