Fresh and clean and feminine birthday card

DSC_0007_edited-1

I love how this card turned out. I was working on another project (Anna's graduation card I posted a few days ago) and had a few pieces of patterned paper laying around. Even though they were so small they were just too pretty to throw away. I know, call me crazy! :) Anyway, I grabbed another sentiment from the Sentiment Signs stamp set, a couple more pieces of patterned paper and completed this card in just minutes. Gosh, does that feel good!

And some of you might recognize the gray and white patterned paper as the banding on the MME paper. Yep, I liked that too! Now you know for sure I'm crazy!

A bit of pink ink swiped around the edge made the top layer stand out just a wee bit and made it look even more pink and girly.

Supplies:
Cardstock: Rustic White (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Slate and Sugar (Fresh Ink)
Stamp: Sentiment Signs (Papertrey Ink)
Patterned Paper: MME

I just love the look of this, and what a fabulous way to use up those scraps of paper--especially when a sheet tiny strip of the most fabulous pattern and color--thanks for this idea, which is already pinned.
