Card Patterns Challenge

I’m feeling quite creative today… which is just as well considering how cold, windy, rainy and miserable it is outside! 

I got my Star Sign ATC’s finished for the Scrapbook Dreams June swap first thing this morning and then I got an email about Card Patterns latest sketch.

sketch69For whatever reason this sketch really inspired me to get into my craft room!  So out came the scrapping supplies… Magnolia stamps (Princess Tilda & Dragonflies), Distress Inks, Swiss Dot cardstock, some patterned paper from Kaiser along with flowers, punches etc and here’s what I came up with:

Front I’m really thrilled with how it turned out :)  When I started I thought I’d just make a square card but then I decided to turn it into an easel card.  Here’s the inside:

InsideI have no idea who’s going to receive this card yet… but at least I’m ready for an unexpected birthday now :)

The gorgeous little Dragonflies really finished off the ‘Happy Birthday’ stamp perfectly:
