My oldest niece recently celebrated her birthday.
I wanted her card to be full of life just like she is so I opted for a fun rainbow palette. I've seen Kristina Werner use this technique of adhering scraps of paper to a piece of printer paper and then cutting it out to give a really cool collage affect. That's what I did with all the strips of patterned paper to create the pretty diagonal base for my card. The circles are my bit of "recycling" as they were actually part of a Christmas card given to my oldest son this past year. I loved all the circles on the front of the card so rather than tossing it, I grabbed one of my circle punches and popped them off the card. The colors of the cute circles worked really well with my rainbow theme and added another layer to the card.
