focus on PATTERNS at Charisma!

woot!  my challenge this week at Charisma, and i couldn't wait to see what the Charisma Galz would do with this one!  i want to see AT LEAST 5 PATTERNED PAPERS on your projects, and while i know that may sound nutty (well, it's me, so it could very well BE nutty!), i must let you know that Team Carly made it look SO easy!

right.  so.  the challenge.  RIGHT HERE.  you've got a week - this one ends next Wednesday, so let's see you rock it!  if you want a tip, it's SUPER easy to do with a simple repetition working within one line from any paper company... 

i mixed it up with 2 - We R Memory Keepers' "Antique Chic" line, and My Mind's Eye's "Everyday Flair".  here's what i came up with (sadly, it seems i've been making more sympathy cards than anything else lately - ugh):

there's a total of 7 patterns here - 6 for the scalloped circles, and one subtle layer across the top of the card.  easy peasy!
so that's one easy way to A) combine a whole slew of patterns without making it look busy or chaotic; and B) use up scraps, if you're buried under a mountain of 'em!  :)

CLICK HERE to check out the projects from the Charisma Galz and to play along - we're giving away prizes from:

yeah.  digis, digis, digis!  6 from DigiStamp Boutique, 3 from Crafty Sentiments, and as many as 10 pounds will get you at Bunny Zoe's!  :)  we have awesome sponsors, and there's SO much variety in their shops, you won't know where to BEGIN if you're one of our winners!  :)  

i've also decided to play along at:

Paper Pretties - their theme is "Spike the Punch" - i loves me some punches!
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - they're looking for "Swirls and Lace"
and that's all she wrote, folks!  happy crafting, and we're ALMOST at the weekend!  WOOT WOOT!
