I just love any excuse to get out my TAWS stamps and play. Their Be Inspired challenge gave me a great reason to have some fun crafting.
I was inspired by the mint and yellow colors of the ice cream, the dark brown of the cola, and the retro feel of the whole picture. I found some retro paisley and floral paper that I've had for a while. I hesitated before I cut it up because I didn't want to use up all my pretty paper. Does anyone else have that problem? I've had that paper for around 5 years and still wanted to keep hoarding it. There needs to be a 12 step program for paper lovers...
Last night, I dreamed that I was at the circus and watched a seal balance things on its nose. So I tried balancing the sentiment on his nose on the card. My next card will have him balancing birthday presents!
The seal is from Castaways and the "for you" is from Jibber Jabber.
After the seal, I was on a roll. Plus I noticed that the paper was double-sided and I definitely needed to showcase both sides (since I forced myself to cut it up). So here's a bonus card using Bird Brain and Jibber Jabber.
