Welcome to Inkspirational Challenge #221, where we're inviting you to draw inspiration from the photo below.
Have to say, I feel sorry for the birthday boy, who appears to be celebrating all on his own. Looks like the table is set in anticipation of guests, but evidently his 'friends' didn't get the invitation! Poor kid!
Sooooo, I'm going to pretend that three friends will be joining him...late ...bringing with them a coordinated ensemble of cards featuring P13 Happy Birthday papers/tags. These papers are ohmystars awesome and, for this challenge, the whimsical images and colours seemed a good fit (at least I think so). Then again, maybe I just wanted an excuse to play with this designer paper *grin*
Card 1: OUTSIDE: Here, I've used the Lawn Fawn Lift the Flap slimline. Connections to the photo include: banner pattern on the paper, yellow from flowers, blue from balloons, kraft as a nod to the furniture...
INSIDE: Inside, images speak to the photo's birthday theme.
Card 2: I played with a slimline from Mama Elephant....
Cards 3 & 4: Purse Cards using Concord & 9th's Everyday Purse dies (made these a while back and finally had a 'reason' to share them. Those papers/tags...love! I will now be hoarding the rest of the package!
The completed ensemble:
Hope these cards made you smile; hope they cheer up the birthday boy!
