Happy Birthday

Hi everyone! Happy Fri-YAY – hope you’ve had a great week! Our new sketch challenges this month are live over at Stick It Down and I’m thrilled to be one of the Featured Designers! I’ve popped in this morning to share my Card Team inspiration project! Angie’s Variety Store is our sponsor this month so come on over and play for your chance to win a prize! This is our super awesome card sketch this month, created by none other than yours truly, lol:


I’ve been busy creating the first six sketches this year for the Stick It Down card team and I’ve had a blast! Using this month’s sketch, I created a pretty birthday card in shades of purple with pops of green. Green and purple have been one of my most favorite color combos for a long time.


I used Grass Cloth cardstock for the background which yields some beautiful texture and a strip of Lozzy’s pretty digital paper down the left side. The focal image, cut with a stitched circle die, features paper piecing of a pretty stamped floral image along with some background stamping using stamps from the same set. I stamped the sentiment, from a different stamp set, in dark purple ink and embellished the strip with Sprinkles. I finished the front with some Crystal Drops.


I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of paper and cardstock used on the front, and stamped the sentiment in dark purple ink.


One more look… I’m so smitten! Such a pretty design in gorgeous colors!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
