Midnight Paisley

Dark, rich, and masculine. That is what I think of with this patterned paper. And versatile! It reminds me of cowboys too. The perfect companion for this lovely stamp from Horse Frontier.

Mix it up with a little sketch challenge and this card came together right quick! Love it when that happens :) As an aside, I printed out a bunch of thumbprints of sketches that I want to try and glued them to rolodex cards. I have this handy little rolodex box I made sitting on my desk that I added them to. Now I can just flip through and find one that fits what I am looking for :)

 It took me a little trial and error to get the measurements right for the blue panels, but it was worth it. I have also set a goal for myself to use up all of the Print Poetry DSP pack before the end of the Occasions mini :) I made a pile of this card for OWH and have just a few usable scraps left of this print. I don't think I will have a problem using them up, because I ♥ this print!
  • Stamps: Horse Frontier

 Not terribly exciting on the inside, but I left this without a sentiment so it can be used for whatever your little heart desires. It is definitely gender-neutral, the recipient just has to like horses :)

Gorgeous! I think that is my favorite paper in the whole pack. It is so versatile. Looks great with the horse! Good luck on your goal to finish the whole pack. I believe in you!

Gorgeous! Love the combination of the horse with the paisley paper, too. And great idea for how to save the sketches for future use. I save them on the computer, but having it on paper is definitely my preference.

What a beautiful card. The colors, the horse and the ribbon look so nice together. It has a serene feeling to it.
