Any Day With Cake is a Happy Day!

Hello everyone, it's Michelle here today with a really fun card for you!  I love using patterned papers on my projects.  So many different colors, designs, themes, etc., and they just add instant pizazz without you having to do a lot.  Simple always = good!  There are so many great papers out there right now and you can find some really cool elements for your cards that really pack a punch.

So, in this card I used Birthday Boy Collection - Journaling Paper - that is where the "we eat:" list came from, and also the red strip with the white dots.  The banner came from Birthday Boy Collection - Banner Papers - I just trimmed out a small bit of banner and adhered it across my card.  The yellow half circle on the left side of the card is from Splash (Echo Park)

I distressed the edges of the red /white dots strip, which just makes it stand out a little more in the mix.  I stamped Even Bolder Sentiments - Happy Day in green ink on some white cardstock, which I then cut out using a Nestabilities die.  Popped it up on some dimensional dots just to make it pop a little bit.  To finish it off I used a brown marker to put the check marks in the boxes on the list. 

How fun is that?  So festive, and super simple thanks to some great patterned papers!

Thanks for stopping by,
