Here's how it inspired me:


I used one of my FAVORITE

CAS-ual Fridays sets



It seriously cracks me up every single time I ink it up.  What's even more funny?  I don't swear...seriously.  Okay, perhaps when I drive and play video games...LOL.

That polka panel?  

vintage Amy Butler.  

I wish she would design for the paper crafting industry again!  Her sense of color and pattern is truly amazing.

I simply stamped the sentiment on a journaling card die cut and attached the Jolee's felt bloom...it's almost a peace offering for forgetting someone's birthday!

I can't wait to see how you're inspired!

  24. Awesome choice of background paper, Amy!! It totally "goes" with your card, and I think I've finally figured out why ... the round felt flower on the gray panel is like zooming in on a single dot on your patterned paper. I'm not sure if that makes any sense, but it does in my head, hahaha! I fell in love the first moment I saw this beauty : )
