Happy Birthday



With Archiver's closing a few months ago, I  haven't bought any 6x6 patterned paper packs lately and honestly haven't missed them much as I'm not much of a patterned paper user, but there are times when a touch of patterned paper provides the right touch. I had made this card without any paper and it didn't look finished to me.  I added the strip of patterned paper against a strip of deep purple cardstock.  To me, this finished the card off.  I think this one might go to Ryan.  The patterned paper actually reminds me of clothes he would where.  He is a bit of a trendy dresser so the combination of patterned paper with music would suit him well.

And of course, the sketch layout is another awesome one from. CASE this Sketch.

Perfect use of pattern paper with your awesome stamping! I am like you, I do love a good pad of pattern paper, but sometimes, I hardly use it at all :) This is one GREAT guy card!
