Don't you just love taking paint samples from the hardware store? There are so many ways to craft with them! Here, I made a clean and graphic card (Moxie Fab World), and kept everything really simple to let the pretty blocks of color speak for themselves.
It's really tough to see in the pic, but the white cardstock strip is textured with embossed dots. The layout inspiration came from clean&simple, and since this is a b-day card, I'm also submitting it to Caardvarks.
