In my continuing effort to get back into the swing of doing regular challenges, while at the same time fleshing out my stash of birthday cards, I made this:
I managed to squeeze three challenge into this one. First, the sketch is from The Sweetest Thing with the current Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge:
I was also influenced by the current Use Your Stuff challenge to use floral papers, and the current Cards In Envy challenge to include banners.
I started with my MME Milo papers and chose a few patterns I thought would work with the sketch, making sure to feature the floral piece. I'm telling you: these matchy-matchy papers are the bomb!
I had the whole card assembled before I realized I had no sentiment. There's me backing myself into a corner again. But you know what? I pulled it out by just adding a small white circle in which I stamped a trusty small Hero Arts sentiment.
That's one more for the birthday pile - go me. :) And yes, I've branched out and added a few more challenges to my list of challenges I might do each week. I plan to stay busy this year!
Thanks for stopping by!
