This week's cue card at Cas-ology was "Story", and I immediately knew the piece of paper that I'd be using for this card. I had a Simon Says Stamp kit that had one piece of pattern paper that spoke to me. I've been hoarding it since that kit was released back in September waiting for the perfect card idea. Today was the day, as it served as my background for this card.
I just love the print on that pattern paper, the combinations of color in the different lines of text. I created my bookshelf using some matching colors of ink, but went a little brighter on the blue as I really wanted that focal piece to pop. Hard to notice, but my edges on that print paper are embossed on the edges at 1/8 and 3/4 inch . . . it just added a little extra interest.
So drawn to these colors!
Sadly - my sheet of colorful print paper is officially gone. Hope you will consider using up a piece of paper you've been saving for a special project.
