May all your wishes come true...

Hello, hello!

The temps are still on the chilly side around here but we are seeing more sunshine every day so I'm unashamedly going full tilt into spring card making. Today I was inspired by this pair of adorable fairies, Flynt and Goldie, from Purple Onion Designs. These two are so cute and I think they look right at home in the Floral Spray stamp that I paired them with. Because the Floral Spray is nice and wide, spreading across the entire card front I thought it would be cool to use it as a natural break in the card design and actually fill the bottom half of the card with some pretty pattern paper. Pretty papers were my first crafting love but these days working them onto a card just doesn't happen very often so it's nice when I can revisit my old love in a new way. I also referenced the pretty pastels in the stripe pattern to pull all my Copic combos from so that everything would match. I used to do that a lot too and it was really helpful as I was learning to mix Copic blends. This reminded me that I should challenge myself to match papers more often because it definitely got me working with a whole new color palette compared to my other recently made cards. And that, as Martha would say, is a good thing. ;)
