The first thing I did was decide on a layout for the card and then the papers I was going to use.
I wanted something fresh and Spring like so chose a pastel floral paper as the main background. Then I chose a stripped paper that reflected the colours in the background and picked one of those colours for the second paper, a plain purple paper. ( try saying that quickly LOL)
Then I used the same paper as the backround for the third paper to marry the whole card together. Staggering the three papers adds interest and gives depth to the card.
The butterfly helps draw the eye to the large bloom in top left and gives the card a spring like feel to it. The purple ribbon helps frame the card and the flower whilst the Birthday Wishes set to cover all three of the staggered papers adds the finishing touch.
I liked this challenge again a simple theme that really makes you think on how to exicute it so it looks fresh and hopefully interesting.
