Over the weekend, my boys had some birthday parties to attend and I found myself short of boy birthday cards. Hmm, too many flowered cards??!! Nah… Simply a reason to stamp! So I turned to my friends over at Create with Connie and Mary to find this awesome sketch!
Lucky for me..it was exactly what I needed to make a quick and fun card! Patterned Party is my go-to set for kid birthday cards! It is perfect for girls and boys and fits the age ranges of both boys and their friends (quite honestly, it is great for adult cards too). I paired it up with the Real Red polka dots from Polka Dot Parade DSP, a pack of paper that I got specifically for cards like this. It works every time!! I added in some Real Red Wide Grosgrain Ribbon (retired) since I continue in my effort to use up the old (so I can get more new). The sentiment comes from my other catalog favorite, Made for You.
