Bold Patterned Birthday ~ DRU

Good morning friends~ There's a new challenge starting up over at the Dies R Us Challenge blog and if you recall, the theme is "Anything Goes" all year long!  
This makes it so easy for us, as a design team, and for you, as a participant! 

Today's card is bold and busy but I like how it turned out using different patterned papers from my scrap box.  The Stitched Tulip from Impression Obsession is so sweet and it can be layered in any number of ways. 

 I chose stripes for the first layer, adding the solid layer on top but I can see it layered in coordinating colors, prints and polka dots too.    
I've layered the lime green polka dotted oval over the oval from Impression Obsessions Quilted Frame.  You have to look really close, it's tone on tone so it's hard to see.

The banner in the top left corner was made using Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Banners and Layered Banners.

I hope you'll visit the DRU Challenge blog to see more inspiration from our amazing design team and join in on the fun.  While you're there, be sure to sign up for their newsletter so you can be one of the first to be notified of their special order events.

Thanks for stopping by!
