Whoo hoo you!

Monochromatic birthday card using Stampin' Up! Big News
This card has a secret. Know what it is? I'll give you a second.

These are holiday papers. Shhh!

Since nobody ever said "Wow, I ordered EXACTLY THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF PAPER," I'm guessing you might have some leftovers. Here's how I cooked mine up to make a gorgeous monochromatic birthday card for a coworker.

The layout was inspired by a card I saw over on Brian's blog this morning. (Yes, I stamp in my pjs. Stop judging.) You'll see that I went off-road pretty fast -- there's no ribbon, and I couldn't fit the third block of paper. Instead, I made the cutest little flag, and I brought in some washi.

Do you love it? I love it. The inside of the card is cute, too -- to balance the weight, I layered in a white pane with a matching washi stripe.

Your challenge for the weekend: Use some of your own holiday paper to make a non-holiday card. Can you do it? I think you can!
