Inspired by Supplies

Inspiration for my cards often comes from just looking at supplies in my craftroom which haven't been used yet (so many).  The Mambi 12x12 Sheets (Me and My Big Ideas) with their drippy watercolor look, the Hero Arts banner stamp set, and Inkadinkado word stamps made me decide to create this child-like birthday card.
I also was influenced by other bloggers who use bright inks (Hero Arts Neon) and baker's twine (Doodlebug) to make their cards lively and fun. I think with the right words inside like, "Not Enough Fingers?" could transform this child's card into one for an older adult.
Here is another color version of the same card.  While not exactly a CAS (Clean and Simple) card, this one was pretty easy and a good one to put in my stash for upcoming birthdays because it can be adapted to many people.  Thanks for visiting this blog. Please leave a comment if you have some time. I enjoy reading your feedback. Have a sweet weekend!

Aw this would make any child curious to see all the pretty colors on this card... Great job on making use of all those supplies, I think us crafter's all accumulate such a bad addiction to hoarding more and more crafty stuff. LOL!
