The Birthday Sketch Challenge

Another of the challenges at Moxie Fab World is to make a birthday card, using a sketch by Betsy Veldman, and the twist is to use either all stamping or no stamping whatsoever.  The sketch is a fun one, and you can never have too many birthday cards on hand, so I did one of each:

MFW Birthday Sketch

supplies: pool layering papers, design papers from MME, Simon exclusive die "Oh Happy Day", Penny Black die "Flutter", embossing folder from Hobby Lobby

MFW Birthday Sketch2

supplies: grass layering paper, Hero Arts Live and Laugh (sentiment) and Let's Chill (flower), and an embossing folder that Heather gave me when I visited her in Ireland, from a German company called CArt-Us

Here's the sketch:

  2. Very pretty! It's getting easier to make cards without any stamping because of the dies available. I'll never give up my stamps, though!
