Today's card is a little different...a little crazy!! Well, maybe not crazy, but it just seems like it to me! I think it's the boldness of it! It was inspired by four things:
- the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge for this week
- a card from Savannah O'Gwynn. She used the little doggie for her tutorial over at Virtual Smooches last week, and I forgot just how adorable this puppy is. Don't know how I forgot, since Woofers and Tweeters is one of my all-time favourite sets!! Oh and her card is FABULOUS! Check it out!
- and a card made by Christine Urias at Scrap Time whom I discovered last week via the Simon Says Stamp blog - I just loved the cards she made! Check them out here!
- Bev's birthday! It's so crazy, but I haven't crossed paths much yet with Bev. I know, where have I been?!! But when I heard from my friends Carol and Geri that she was celebrating her birthday and that a blog party had been planned, I wanted make a little something to wish her a BIG Happy Birthday!
Here's the sketch:
And here's my card:
Like I said, it's bold! I hand drew the loop-de-loop border (yup, still loving making my own borders right now!) which was totally inspired by Christine's card. The sentiment is a masking project that took a bit of time, but I think it was worth it! And then to add a little humour, I decided to have bones growing on the trees, making the little dog's birthday wish come true, as the sentiment says!
Hope you like it, and hope you are having a lovely day! AND, Happy Birthday Bev!!
