SCS Birthday

Hi Everyone!

Well, I had grand plans to post this early this morning and then do some stamping and quite possibly post another card again. As you can see, that didn't quite work out!! Oh well, I suppose one card is better than none right! I made this card for this week's SCS sketch challenge as well. I really liked this sketch because it is just rectangles and squares. Sometimes circles and other shapes are challenging. I focused a lot on using patterned papers with this card and that in turn helped me to finish the card in a decent amount of time. I think this one only took me about 30 mins to do! I started with a piece of charcoal grey from PTI and added a layer of Mellow Moss that I ran through my CB with the swiss dots folder. Next I added a layer of patterned paper from Crate Paper's Restoration Collection that I matted on a piece of Not Quite Navy from SU. The pink pattern paper is also from Crate Paper. The adhesive lace ribbon is from Basic Grey. The Happy Birthday Sentiment is from OCL's "Say it Big" and is stamped with Not Quite Navy ink on Vanilla card stock. Finally I finished the card with a few random buttons.
I hope to find some time to stamp again this weekend, and I hope you do too!
