Happy Birthday - Traveler's Inspiration Challenge #1
This is a card for Travelingmama's first Traveler's Inspiration Challenge. I have 2 nieces celebrating birthdays next month, so this card will be for one of them. I remember seeing these colorful Moroccan slippers on Tina's website months ago...so pretty! The photography on her site is impeccable. I love hearing about life in Morocco.
I was inspired by the sequined designs and the colors of the slippers. I love repeated geometric shapes on a card. I also listened to Kristina's challenge to "Use it, Sister." I used stamps I've owned for at least a year and have never inked up. In my next few posts, I'm also going to use paper and stamps I haven't used yet. So, I'm using it, Sister!
Thanks for stopping by!
