Colorful Birthday Card


So my Sister Nina texts me this morning and asks if I’m into making a card and I say “Sure!” – she asks if I have a challenge in mind so I hunted and pecked and settled on Your Next Stamp Sketch Challenge #92 – and I discover that once again our sisterly brains are on the same creative wavelength because she had not only chosen this same challenge but had already chosen and assembled her bits in readiness.  This happens to us often.  Do you have this happen too?  This said, I think its so cool how we can take the same sketch and make completely different looking cards out of it. 

I used a slice of K&C Company designer paper for the backdrop and then layerd on stripes of color coordinated cardstock bits (nice way to use up scraps!  I stamped this sentiment from Your Next Stamp (love this set) and diecut this banner panel from glittery cardstock.  I thought I was done at this point.  Showed and Telled to Nina then took a pic in prep to post.  Wandered off and had lunch, all the while thinking it looked kind of naked up by the sentiment.  Came back and it hit me to add the small bits of blues and greens to “frame” in the words.  Voila! 

Do you ever wander off and come back with revelations of improvement or enhancement to your cards? 

Thanks for stopping by today!
