On Persnickety Stampers we have a monthly colour/theme challenge and for May it was Bright, Bold & Floral. For me that is usually a big challenge but while I was at the stamp store this 12x12 pattern paper from BasicGrey caught my eye. I thought this certainly is brighter and bolder than I would normally use.
This is a different sized card than standard ( 3 3/4" x 7 1/4") but when I get freebie envelopes from the card shop, that sometimes drives what size I make. I used a section from the upper left corner of the sheet with the flowers on a subtle distressed background stripe in grey. To this I added "Birthday wishes" from the SU! set Sincere Salutations and a flourish stamp from Autumn Leaves flourishes v:1 in black Versafine from Tsukineko
