Birthday Wishes

I'm back with another card!  This is for today's Create with Connie & Mary challenge.  This week's challenge is a sketch and it definitely was a challenge!  The diagonals were scary at first, but my trick was to adhere the strips on the card stock, then line it up in my paper trimmer and cut off the excess.

I thought this would be the perfect sketch to showcase some of the new designer series paper in the 2012-2013 Annual Catalog!  The paper I featured here is called Floral District and is super cute!  I paired it with a simple sentiment from the set, Bring on the Cake.  I think it turned out pretty cute!

Supplies List:
Paper: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Floral District Dp
Stamps: Bring on the Cake
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Scallop Border Punch, Baja Breeze Pleated Ribbon

Pin It
