ccc: two or more patterned papers

Good morning all! Time for another Christmas card club cardset this morning. Our theme this fortnight was paperned papers. Well I'm not much of a one for using papers and I really wasn't sure where I was going to go with this one - but thankfully at Clarity Cumbria we last got a paper pad as our take home item and also lots of inspiration about using them. So I reached for my 'Northern Lights' paper pad and came up with the following funky makes - I'm rather pleased with them!




Just Tim Holtz sizzix dies, Northern lights paper pads and a little stamping too - I think they're rather effective! What do you think??? And quick - these three were made in under 40 minutes!

Hope you have a great Sunday!

Hugs
