Sketch Frenzy Friday!

Paper Players Sketch!

Happy Thursday!!  It's a busy day here in our household--well, at least for me!  Gym, orthodontist, Character Counts awards, orchestra concert!!  whew--I'm tired just thinking about it!! :-)  So, I'm posting early for your viewing pleasure!!

Today's card is based on the sketch over at The Paper Player's blog!

February Sketch Challenge 35

This sketch really caught my eye--I thought it would be fun to work with!  And, it was!  Here's my card:


The card is a "weird" size--it's 4 x 8 1/2, when closed.  It will fit in a business-sized envelope!  And, for fun, I used the Jolly Holiday Designer Paper!!  I have so much left over after the holidays, and these prints are really holiday themed!  What do you think?  Does it look like a Christmas card?  I hope not!    How do you like my little birthday banner--it was cut using the Petal Cone Die!!  That might be my favorite part of the die!  For the stamped images, I used an old favorite, Vintage Vogue.  Colors are Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight.  Not sure I'm crazy about the Daffodil Delight--what do you think?  It needed a third color, but I couldn't decide.  I pulled out my Color Coach, and it was listed under Cherry Cobbler!!  So, it's not really my fault!! haha!

Hope you have a wonderful day!!  I'll see ya again tomorrow!

I am always trying to use up the Jolly Holly DSP...never works for me. You did good by adding in the 3rd color to make it work for a Birthday card. Great Job! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players this week!
