Happy Birthday-Sketch


Hello, It’s time for the next topping over at Seize the Birthday! JoAnn is our wonderful hostess and she has chosen a sketch for us this time around. If you know me at all, you know I love sketch challenges, so I was super excited to see this one coming up.

Card Details: I have so many companies on this little card! Flamingo and flowers are from MFT, the sun and rolling hills are from Lawn Fawn, the plaid stenciled panel is from Miss Ink Stamps, the wood grain EF that I am hoping represents waves when you put it horizontally is from Sizzix-Tim Holtz. The sentiment is from Avery Elle. I did some very light sponging on my flamingo.

I am linking up with the fun over at AAA Birthday Challenge where it’s Anything Goes.

I hope you come on over to Seize the Birthday and check out all the amazing inspiration from the Design Team and our guest-Karren and play along!

Take care and happy crafting, Nanc’
