What do you think? A few years ago, I created a card using the same layout I used today. I actually went back into my archives looking for inspiration. I found it! You can see my original card here.

As with so many posts, when I sat down to make a card, I needed some inspiration. I wanted to use this pattern from the Delightfully Ecclectic Designer Series Paper. If you don’t already have it, take a look at the amazing patterns. This paper pack will take you through lots of beautiful paper caradting projects, I promise!

Let’s make a card!
