Happy Birthday! A Throwdown, Inspiration, and a Sketch!



Happy Saturday!    I feel I have been counting down the last days of school for a while now.  When is it going to end?  LOL!  Actually,  the students are already out, but I still have 2 days of workshops then I am home free!  Not much longer!  

My son  informed me that he has a Birthday Party to go to this evening for a friend at school. So, I had to head to my crafty space and pop up a quick girly Birthday card!  I think it turned out fresh, fun, and young!  

I am playing along with Fusion Card Challenge and The Color Throwdown!  I combined the colors from The Color Throwdown with the inspiration and sketch from Fusion Card Challenge.  I was inspired by the trellis look, the newsprint, and the staggered flowers.  I used the Lifestyles Trelis border.  I used Verve's Chevron Love stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment several times going up the side.  I used the larger butterfly to stamp pieces of the trelis in coordinating inks.  I added some newsprint dp.  I finished my card with a seam binding bow using Verve's Truly Madly Deeply Ribbon Collection in Cotton Candy and Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix. 



As always thanks so much for stopping by!
