Happy Birthday - Cardabilities Sketch #42

I am excited to share with you my second card as a design team member for Cardabilities.

Cardabilities is the most wonderful sketch site.  We release two sketches a month - on the 15th and 30th.  You can always check right here for the current sketch or go to the website where all the sketches are archived.

Starting with a sketch is always a bonus for me.  Less staring at my table, more creativity flowing.

Here is Sketch #42 and I hope you'll give it a try.  Then you can upload YOUR card to the Cardabilities site to share with everyone.


At first I thought this would be super hard, but it wasn't.  I just started layering and before you know it, I had a card I really did like.

I used the circle dies from Spellbinders and the open ended banner die from PaperTrey Ink to make my focal images.

Then I just added a bit of stuff from my stash to finish up the card.

I am excited to be on this great team and I hope you will give this sketch a try.  I know you'll have fun working with it.

I'll be back here tomorrow with a masculine birthday card. And I hope I'll see you then.
