MTTC #517 Use 2 or more print papers theme DT card for 22 September 2023

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! This card was made from a box of stash items that I haven't accessed for several months. It was like a breath of fresh air to delve into the box and see what would work for MTTC's #517.

WHAT: My Time To Craft challenge blog's #517 theme is to use 2 or more patterned/print papers (or cardstocks).

WHEN: #517 starts September 22, 2023 and lasts for 13 days


1. Close To My Heart card kit pieces: blue flowered print cardstock base (only 85% is flowered); yellow with tiny white flowers banner die-cut cut in half; and white with teeny tiny light blue dots banner die-cut

2. unknown origin for white with dark blue leafy print paper was received as extras from a swap partner from a FB group

3. Wal-Mart or Dollar Tree = sheet of varied cupcake stickers

4. Stampin' Up = very old "HB" stamp

5. stash= 2 layered flower die-cut stick-ons; black ink pad for stamping; blue ink pad for paper edging and a blue marker for outlining
