My Thursday Challenge

There are some bizarre papers in one of the Tim Holtz stacks that I bought at Hobby Lobby.  The colors are good in them, but, honestly, a bullseye design?  

My Thursday challenge to myself was to use these weirdly patterned papers.  I'm quite pleased with the way these cards turned out! 

 The sentiment on the mat was computer generated.  The other is a Tim Holtz stamp.

The first two (cards) would be good masculine cards.
Butterflies and a bullseye.  What a combination!  But, it works!

Most of the time I just use my Corner Chomper and have rounded corners.  I found a different corner punch and thought I'd like it.  The shape it punches doesn't really match what's shown on the back of the punch.  But I used it on the computer printed sentiment and its mat.

The butterflies are color copies of some wall stickers that I found at the Dollar Tree.  By making a photocopy onto white cardstock, you eliminate the shiny surface on the stickers, which, in my opinion looks better on a card.
