Patterned Paper Birthday Cards [MIM #67, CQC #138]

Happy Birthday Confetti Cards

Again, a fun challenge at Papertrey ... use at least 3 patterned papers on a card.

Papertrey Happy Birthday Orange Aqua AC Pattern Papers

One challenge is to use patterned papers from the same pack. Already coordinated, nice! The "2" and "u" circles, and the punched border, are leftovers from last week's project that I haven't posted yet.

Then, you are challenged to use patterned papers from your scrap bin. Much more playing around with things for this challenge, not so easy when things aren't already picked for you! I always love making things from my leftover papers though. Seems like you often come away with something you totally wouldn't have thought of otherwise. This card has 5 pattern papers ... a record for me!

It also uses the colors for this week's ColorQ challenge:

Thanks for looking!
