(2) project photo will be shared with 100 Pattern Papers Challenge group on Facebook; premise of the group is to select at least 100 print papers/cardstock and use them within 1 calendar far this is my 2nd year but I still don't keep track adequately...I do know that the dark purple cardstock for the base and the 2 print papers for the layered 'flower' are old stuff picked up in my craft zone out in one of our garages!

(3) project photo will be also shared in Facebook with "Mixed Media Creativity", a closed group started by yours truly!

(4) Facebook group for stamp company Paper Sweeties; project photo will be shared with this group
