Today is the day! The brand new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs are live! WooHoo! Are you as excited as I am?

This paper from the new Birthday Bash DSP has to be one of my all time faves. The Night of Navy and Whisper White are beautiful together, and the swirly shapes are both fun (think splashing water) and elegant (think damask.)

I needed to make a belated birthday card for a male friend, and I thought this paper would be perfect. I did want to add a pop of another color, just to give it some pizzazz. Night of Navy and Tangelo Twist contrast each other nicely – one dark and serious, the other bright and fun.

Just a few simple layers, some Whisper White bakers twine, and some Stampin’ Dimensionals make this card scream, “Happy (Belated) Birthday!”
