Wonderful World Birthday Card PP603

by Joanne James7. August 2022 08:00

Today it's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the fabulous Jaydee to host this week and she has a fun theme challenge for you to work with:


So many ways to go with Jaydee's theme this week and so many choices! I am still busy cutting up my beautiful Wonderful World designer series papers so wanted to use Judy's great layout over at Freshly Made Sketches this week to showcase one of my favourite flowers in the pack for today's challenge - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I highlighted my fussy-cut flower on a bright yellow stitched diecut circle and some diecut leaves and paired it with another of the blue-toned patterns in this pack. I experimented with different combinations of patterns for the three panels, but decided I preferred all three cut from the same paper so went with it. A few in-colour enamel dots and a fussy-cut sentiment from the 'Simply Fabulous' stamp set, stamped in Starry Sky, completes my card:


This card has a lovely clean feel with all that white space, despite its layers - and I love the way the layout highlights that single flower. What's more, this paper can be yours FREE, along with the 'Wonderful World' stamp set, when you place an online order of £90 or more between now and 31st August - yay for FREE!!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my Product and 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any.

Joanne, this is gorgeous!  So clean and fun!  I love your fussy cut flower and the way it pops off the yellow circle!  I love the DSP panels and I agree.  I like them all out of the same pattern.  Such a happy card.  Have a wonderful week, My Friend!

Oh so pretty, Joanne!  I love how the yellow circle highlights your beautiful fussy-cut flower.  I enjoy a bit of fussy cutting every once in a while too.

So pretty, Joanne.   I love the soft blues with the touch of yellow.  Reminds me of the first croci of the season in England.   Fabulous card.

Oh my, I like this! It was a great sketch - I've tucked it away for future use, for sure. I haven't even opened that pack of paper yet. I see I'm missing a great opportunity.
