The focal point of my cards is almost always a stamped image. I guess I just think of myself as a stamper, but I rarely highlight the paper or embellishments on a card, but rather use them to enhance the main image. Today's card is different. It's all about the paper, which in this case is from Cosmos Cricket.
I saw this sketch from 365 Cards (challenge 116, Sunday Sketch) and knew right away which papers to use. The card came together very quickly, and I even had some fabulous trim to use on it.
The card is also for the current challenge at Victorine Originals (#37) which is to create a Happy Birthday or Happy Everything card. I honestly thought I had a stamp that said "happy everything," but sadly I couldn't find it. This sentiment from Club Stamp is the same idea, however. Yes, the sentiment is intentionally at an angle, because the lines on the graph paper wouldn't have lined up properly.
