Happy Birthday

Popping in quickly today to share a card I made using the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches Challenge :)

Here's the sketch:

And here's my take:

This sketch is a great way to make use of the loads of patterned paper I have been hoarding in my stash. I cut these from an oldie but goodie 6x6 patterned paper pad from My Mind's Eye called "Oxford Lane." LOVE the color combo of navy, green, yellow and a touch of aqua. Super fun!!!

I'll be snail mailing this one to my dad for his upcoming March birthday :) I hope he likes it!

Thanks for visiting!!!

Have a wonderful day!!!

  1. What a fun mix of patterns and a festive take on the sketch! Terrific Bday card for your dad!

  2. I love the bold patterns you used and the funky layout - it's SO eye-catching! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  3. A great masculine card and a fun way to use your pattern paper. If I used all my 6 x 6 pads using this method, I could create roughly 43 million cards!

  4. I love how you layered all these papers together. It's a delightful jumble of pattern and color! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  5. These patterns work wonderfully together and the higgledy-piggledy look is so whimsical! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
