Tonight is the Papertrey Blog Hop~ if you are just tuning in, be sure and read the explanation here . Here's the skinny on this month's challenge:
With January being the beginning of the year, it is the perfect time to build up a stash of birthday cards! This month's challenge is to create your very best version of a birthday card. The card can be geared towards a female, male or child; it's your pick! With the collaboration of all our ideas in one central spot, we will have more than enough inspiration to get us through the entire year! We look forward to seeing what you cook up!
I often make Birthday cards, so just play around my blog to see many more!
As a knitter I learned to let busy yarn carry the pattern, and I think the same is true with paper. This black and white pattern from Papertrey's Black & White Basics pack is so busy it hurt my eyes to even put a ribbon on, lol! Hence, just a sentiment with a touch of color, and done! The flower is from Women of Life, and the sentiment inside is from Mixed Messages. If you don't have Mixed Messages, you need to go buy it right now! It has the tiniest of sentiments that fit inside anythng you might want. I hand cut the flower out, then mounted it on a Marvy punched Pure Poppy circle. Sometimes it is the simplest of cards that carry the biggest impact, and I think it is true here!
Hope you are having fun hopping! Come back tomorrow, I have more Valentines to post!
