Birthday Party Boy

Thank you for joining me for our last retro sketch. Nina picked her favorite this week from the wonderful 2014 sketches. It is by a former DT member, Laura Nehring. It is an easy sketch and great for those clean and simple cards. Of course, you aren't limited to CAS and can embellish away if you so desire.

Our sponsor this week is  Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet who has provided the DT with three fun images to use this week.

Now, here is this week's sketch:

The image I am using is called Birthday Party Boy. I have printed it onto X-Press It brand card and colored it with my Copic markers. Starting with a white 5 x 7" card, I've layered a piece of blue on top. I then cut a colorful strip of striped paper and laid it across the blue. My image was cut with a Spellbinder circle die which I placed on top of a Spellbinder scalloped circle which I cut from yellow paper. All the paper is from a Paperage pad called Cupcakes and Cherries. Lastly, I printed the sentiment onto the yellow paper then matted it with the blue followed by the yellow again.

We would love for you to join in this week's challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches. Just stop by the TMS Blog for details and also to see the great cards the DT have made to get your Mojo moving this week.
