Gingersnap Creations Challenge - Use Your Fave Paper!

It's once again time for my favorite Gingersnap Creations Challenge - the Random Redhead Challenge, and this month it is GC135: Use Your Favorite PaperWe're focusing on using our scraps this month as well as getting them all organized. So for this challenge, grab some of those fabulous scraps that you just can't part with and make something fun!  Or, resolve to finally cut into that gorgeous piece of patterned paper that you've been admiring for, oh, maybe.... months?!  For my card, I've used an Iron Orchid Designs butterfly paper, along with my all-time favorite type of patterned paper to work with - vintage text!  I've framed up the Small Butterfly and Papillon sentiment from Jo Capper-Sandon's line at Stampotique Originals, our sponsor for this challenge.  Some twine and a small red bead provide a little accent.

I hope you can play along..... One randomly drawn winner from the qualifying participants for this challenge will become the new Home Page Artist for a week on Gingersnap Creations, and will win a $30 voucher to the Stampotique Originals store.  How sweet is that? ;)
