Bold and Bright Birthday

Hi guys. Today's card took me out of my comfort zone. I have a lot of pattern papers in my stash, but I find myself reaching for cardstock and my Cuttlebug folders for backgrounds instead of using the papers!!!! Yeah, just hoard the patterned paper forever!!!! :p

So I challenged myself to use some patterned paper for a card.

I absolutely love this paper line -- very brilliant and bold!

I also reused some flowers from a card I had received. I find it very difficult to throw out any cards I receive ....but there's just too many....and so I have started taking embellishments off the cards, so I can at least reuse them a bit...and not throw everything away.

So the flowers are from a completely different collection, but the colors fit together nicely, I think.

Of course I also added lots of bling...cause I love to make my cards sparkle! :)

Challenge complete! I love everything about this card! :) I'm happy....and gonna be making more cards with this patterned paper for sure! Super easy...and pretty. :)
