Where do you find it?

Your inspiration that is.  I found some yesterday and just had to go with it.  My beautiful daughter's birthday is today.  I vividly remember bringing her home from the hospital and just staring at her, completely in awe of how absolutley perfect she was.  She is still perfect but she speaks now!!  At nine years old, she definitely speaks!!

Her friend dropped off this gift yesterday and I just had to try to make a card based on the design in the wrapping paper.


Here is my attempt.  Do you recognize that flower?  It is from the Loopy Flowers Decorative Strip Die and it is on the Last Chance List so it is only available through June 30th.  Click HERE to see my other Loopy Flowers Cards.

  1. very fun and simple card! I can’t seem to find inspiration in places. Maybe I’m just not looking hard enough–too much going on that I feel we’re rushing through life sometimes! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Very nice – I can see why you liked it – not only great colors but a great layout too! LOL!
    Happy Birthday to your daughter!

  3. Cute card, Barb, but more importantly, Happy Birthday Jadyn! Is she really 9 already? I’m surprised you aren’t giving this thank you card to the person who sent the gift. Could be a new line… thank you cards in the design of the wrapping paper of the gift. Great job!

  4. Isn’t it amazing how something as simple as gift wrap can inspire us to create a card. You did a great job on your recreation! Anyone would be thrilled to receive this card.

  5. WOW! I love this look. So pretty and who would have thought you would look at this paper and see this card. Awesome. thanks for sharing this with us, Barb. and Happy Birthday to your daughter.

    I love the look. I never thought to look at wrapping for inspiration. Thanks so much for sharing this with us.

  7. I’m glad you find inspiration in all sorts of places so I can just go to you for inspiration:) Thanks for sharing the cute card (I never get wrapping paper that bright) MJ

  8. Ahhh… happy… bubbly….girly….simple….cheery…change the message and you have a birthday or get well or thinking of you. This is just a perfect one to make up ahead and leave the message empty until it’s time you need a card for any reason you stamp it for!

  9. The jazzy punch card with the new stamp is almost ‘electric’ .. an easy masculine card. The base of it lends itself to all sorts of quick variations.

  10. Very cute card! Hope your daughther has a very happy birthday! I wish I could look at things and get inspiration! It’s like it doesn’t look right when I do it but when others do it- it looks great! Thanks for the chance to win it!

  11. The card is very pretty —I’m always in awe of your creativity Barb ! Looking forward to working with you and learning the tricks of the Big Shot !

  12. Another perfect card with the ability to make it more masculine or stick with the “girly” feel. I love it & look forward to seeing new SU “must haves”.
