Happy Birthday

One of the sketches I ponder each week is the Wednesday Card Sketch challenge at Splitcoast.  I subscribe to the email notification for their sketch challenge thread so it lands in my InBox each week as a reminder, and that's so helpful. We all know I need more challenges to play. :)

Here's this week's SCS sketch challenge:

and my card:

My MME Milo 6x6 paper pack was still out on my desk, so I chose a few paper remnants to make this. The sentiment was stamped in Hero Arts Navy ink onto a white remnant and trimmed to fit.

There's not really much else to say - well, except that I think the diagonal stripes should go in the other direction. ;/

I'm also entering this in the current CAS-ology challenge:

and the current Male Room challenge of New Beginnings (I think a birthday is a new beginning).

Now my Milo paper has been put away, and I've played a few more challenges. I'll be back shortly. :)

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I like all the patterns you put together; the dots just look great with all the lines and diamonds. Great way to soften things a bit.

  2. I saw this yesterday but a shiny thing distracted me. I like the muted colors and the patterns. Mucho Excelante!

  3. Thanks for joining in this week in TMR - your card is lovely - Jacqueline xx

  4. I do like the papers you've used on the birthday card - just right for a guy. Thanks so much for playing along with TMR this week!

  5. Hey Leslie! What date couldn't be more important then a birthday!! Great interpretation of the cue card. Thank you so much for joining us this week at CASology.

  6. I agree, with Kymona, a birthday is a very important date for sure! I love the mix of patterns on our card..very nicely coordinated. Thanks for joining us at CASology!

  7. You did a great job combing those pattered papers! Love your card, Leslie! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology.
