Papertrey Ink - Throwback Thursday

                     THROWBACK THURSDAY - be happy

It's time for the latest 'Throwback Thursday' feature over on the Papertrey Ink Blog.  The sweet and cheerful Be Happy, designed by the lovely Melissa Bickford, has me thinking SPRING! This 4" x 5.25" trio, in lovely hues of yellow and blue, all share a vellum backed/scallop edged striped frame, pretty little butterflies and blooms and the addition of a few Nuvo drop/sequin embellishments, allowing you to send the perfect spring-infused birthday greeting!

This pretty little Be Happy set was originally released in February of 2014, and had been on my wish list/Pinterest gallery for quite awhile. When the stamps and dies became part of the April Sale Madness,  they were happily added to my Papertrey Ink collection (along with the 2008 Bitty Box Basics and Sheer Basics Vellum collection patterned papers!).

In shades of Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Spring Rain and Blueberry Sky, there are some little details (petite/scalloped frame, Nuvo dotted flowers and butterfly, gridded patterned paper background, lovely Sale Tag #3) that add welcome dimension to this simple, but layered, birthday card.

I hope that you'll be inspired to search out, and create with, a few of your Papertrey Ink 'classics'. 
Be Happy, with it's crisp clean lines, lovely diagonal patterns, perfect petite sentiments and pretty scallops, certainly fits into that category and provides oodles of design possiblities!

Hi Michelle! I can’t thank you enough for using this set, for today’s post. I haven’t seen it in ages and your cards are perfectly designed. I also wanted to thank you for using different palettes, it really helps me with a broader inspiration. If that makes sense. Happy Thursday to you! 😊
