Paper Sweeties February 2016 Inspiration Challenge

Monday, February 1, 2016

Well, it's that time again. The February Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge is up and running. I made a girly birthday card for this one.
The sentiment and gift image are from the Paper Sweeties Let's Party stamp set, and I used the coordinating Let's Party Sweet Cuts die set to cut out the white mat for the gift.  I used pink Liquid Pearls for the dots on the gift, and painted the same LP on the lid and bow. Paper Sweeties has so many gorgeous colors of tea dyed seam binding. I used Grape this time, and added a few Cotton Candy sequins, filled with Diamond Stickles, for sparkle.
Here's the inside. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Paper Sweeties Hello Friend stamp set.

The colors in this month's challenge are perfect for a Valentine creation, but as you can see from the inspiration photo and my card, it doesn't have to be anything holiday related.

So sweet, and pretty papers! I don't know why this took two days to pop into my Bloglovin'. Afraid I might be missing some things by relying on that. Love the pretty ribbon and how you dressed up the present, too.
