This card is just so FUN! The inspiration for this card actually came from the mess on my desk! I know I wanted to make a card with this stamp set but I wasn’t sure where to start. There happened to be a this piece of On The Horizons paper on my desk and I thought, wow, that kinda looks like a spill. (Don’t ask me, I know my brain works in weird ways! 🤣)
So off I went and it actually came together quickly! All of the colors used on this card came directly from the pretty On The Horizons paper and I kept the stamping super simple!
I think the thing I love the most about this card are those adorable Matte Dots that I used on the robot eyes. They just add the right touch of whimsy and humor I was looking for in this card!
