Happy Saturday!

My inspiration for today’s card came from a piece of patterned paper.  The Well Suited Designer Series Paper is a mix of simple and classic patterns in grays, blues and oranges.  Those who read my posts know that I am a big fan of the blues and oranges paired together.  Today’s colors are Poppy Parade and Night of Navy.  Both are rich, deep tones in their respective color families.

The Well Suited Designer Series Paper is part of a primarily masculine suite but it’s so classic that I was easily able to create a feminine birthday card with it.  How fun it was to put this card together!

I created a bit of a pattern repeat using the Pierced Bloom Dies and white resin dots.  This card design is “clean”, without any embossing or a lot of embellishment.  The pierced images and colors make it all happen along with the paper bow.  The bow is one of the die cut images from the Pierced Bloom Dies.

The “Happy Birthday” sentiment stamped with Night of Navy ink is one of the sentiments from the Happy Thoughts stamp set.  It has seven mixed font images including inside card sentiments.  It’s a good set to take a look at and add to your stamp library.

So, take out a bunch of patterned paper and look it over quickly.  Pull out the one that catches your eye and let that be the inspiration for your next project.

…the only limitation is your imagination!
