Blue Paisley Birthday Card

Happy Tuesday! October first has arrived and the cooler weather is on it's way. That makes me very happy! Over the weekend I found a couple challenges I wanted to combine. I found a new to me challenge called Sketchbook Saturday and combined the sketch with the Tic Tac Toe challenge from The Paper Players. To create this Blue Paisley Birthday Card I selected the middle row across to use patterned paper, embossing, and any shade of blue. The colors used are Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, and Midnight Muse. I really liked working with this sketch and it's not something I would have come up with on my own. Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific day!

  • Paper: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, and Midnight Muse cardstock, Print Poetry paper stack (retired) and Neutral designer series paper stack (retired).
  • Stamps: Papillion Potpourri and Simply Sketched Hostess stamp sets.
