almost birthday time + kwerner's CI#50!

hip hip hooray! tomorrow's my birthday! i'm so excited (can you tell?!) to have a wonderful birthday with family and friends, and in preparation of some stamping coming up this weekend with Paulina, i've done a bit of it on this card using Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration #50!

i've never used houndstooth paper, but i already love it--pretty classy stuff in my opinion. i'm not sure if this is my favorite card, but i liked working with the colors. maybe next time i'll use different proportions of each color.

anyway, i have two more polo games to coach, one of which is TONIGHT, so i'm gonna head out for that... i'll probably pop in tomorrow with something else. this is really quick, but i'll make it up later :)
thanks for looking!

gorgeous card. you could make it a bit larger and it would work beautifully as the cover of one of those bound school know, keep it flat, cover it in clear wrap of some type...

the design is very versatile. and i agree, the houndstooth gives it a little something 'extra.'
