Thanks Card–With Patterned Paper

Good afternoon!  Today I’m playing along with Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – Use Patterned Paper.  I’ve been trying to reduce my stash of items that I’ve been hoarding and not using.  Patterned paper is one of those categories.  I’ve purged a lot, things I don’t like, know I won’t use, or the remnants of packs that I used my favorites out of already.  I cut my stash by about 1/3, but I still have a lot I intend to use.  This challenge is a perfect opportunity.

Wishing You A Happy Birthday

Shortly after 6×6 paper pads came to the market en masse, I began collecting them.  However, I tended to hoard them rather than use them.  After having had my collection for a substantial amount of time, I have made it my goal to use more patterned paper on my cards.  I really like white space (I mean white white space) so I find using patterned paper difficult.  I’ve been wanting to try a curved card, and knowing it would be a good way to use some patterned paper, I decided to use this design for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – Make A Wish.
