WPlus9 Monday Mood Board #12 - Birthday Party!!


 I saw this inspiration photo for the Monday Mood Board at the WPlus9 blog and knew I had to play along - it just looks like a party going on doesn't it?  Dawn, the creator of WPlus9 and her husband are both celebrating a birthday this month so of course I made a birthday card!  I packed lots of color in this one - I hope I didn't go overboard - it was like a snow ball rolling down a hill - just getting bigger and bigger as it went!  Totally out of my control folks - like my friend Joyce says - sometimes cards just make themselves!!  I tried to grab as many of the  elements from the photo I could - the colors, twine, polka dots and chevrons!

I hope you have a great day - and join the party if you have the time!!

Jeanne

Oh, a self assembling card--I love those. And, yours has formed itself to a party. I love it. So many bright vivid colors, and those paislies look so festive stamped like that.

Your card just screams "Happy Birthday"! So much great color and excitement...it really does look like a birthday party! I love how you balanced out all that color with the black/white sentiment and you even got a stick pin in there too! Love this one Jeanne.
