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:


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


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:

Lin, I love both of them! A great take on the sketch :) Love how each of your embossed backgrounds goes perfectly with your butterflies and flowers!

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!
