Created by Hand Challenge


This week's Created by Hand challenge is to use patterned and/or "fancy" papers in creating. This fabulous florentine paper I used on the side of my card is one of my very favourites, and I hoard every precious little piece! I thought it was a nice fit for the Turkish castle. Okay, it's NOT Turkish, it's in India, and it's the Taj Mahal, how could I NOT know that? How embarrassing! Thanks for the education Elaine. The plainer, distressed paper is Basic Grey, and the gold is metallic, from a Local Stamp Store. The paper and the sentiment stamp are available from Quietfire Design .

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.

Nice paper and good match for the Taj Mahal

Oh, Deborah, this is a Wonderful!Although it's Turkish, it makes me think of the Taj Mahal and Ghandi combined with a saying from the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Dag Hammarskjold, makes this piece not only beautiful, but thought provoking!

This is a lovely card very well laid out and the patterned paper suits it wonderfully.

I love the elegance and simplicity of this piece. Your patterned paper is lovely and reminded me that I have some special patterned paper tucked away. Thanks for the reminder LOL
