Seize the Birthday ~ Pattern Paper

This challenge over at Seize the Birthday is about using your pattern paper!
I don't use pattern paper much, although I love it and seem to have quite a stash of it! LOL
My problem is I am not very good about mixy matchy if you know what I mean.  I love packs that are meant to go together, so when I saw this cupcake pattern paper, I went with it!
Hero Arts:  cupcakes
Verve die
My Minds Eye:  Lime Twist Paper Pack
Okay, you know the can go with the TOPPING for this challenge which is "PATTERN PAPER or you can make ANY KIND OF BIRTHDAY CARD!
Check out the cards made by the design team, there are some awesome inspiration over there!

Heart Hugs, friends!


  1. This is just darling!! I have the same stash of pp that I never turn to anymore but your sweet card makes me want to go through my treasured sheets and put some to use!!

  2. I know exactly what you mean about pattern paper. I have tons on 6 x 6 pads and so much 12 x 12. I don't use it. I think it comes from the rule of not wearing stripes with checks that I grew up with. I NEED to start using it and you are an inspiration with this cute card. The coloring and shading is perfect and now I want a cupcake!

  3. I think most of us know exactly what you mean about matching PP. I struggle with it too! This card is super cute! The shadowing and droplets of sprinkles really adds a lot of dimension. Terrific job and have a fabulous weekend! All it's suppose to do here is rain! :(

  4. I think its come out as a totally happy card... what with the giant cupcake and the pretty pattern papers.. you've totally rocked it, Collen! :)

  5. Super cute card, Colleen! I love the fun cupcake paper!

  6. Great card Colleen. Love the yummy looking cupcake and your pretty papers match so well..

  7. Wonderful matching of paper, Colleen! I'm terrible at using more than one paper. LOL, I'm not good with even one pattern!

  8. Love your use of the pp here and the matching image you chose.
