A HUGE Happy Birthday

Hi everyone! I have a clean and simple card to share today. The layout is from an older OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge and is the perfect for this HUGE birthday sentiment. I'm also working on several more of this card for Operation Write Home.  The stamp is by Victorine Originals and I'm entering today's card in the Anything Goes Challenge at Make It Monday!

My card base is Riding Hood Red layered with PTI White then Roses patterned paper. The shadow layer is green cardstock from DCWV. The sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and layered on Riding Hood Red. To embellish the card I added silver rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

  • Stamps:  Happy Birthday (Victorine Originals)
  • Paper: Riding Hood Red, PTI White, Roses Patterned Paper (Colorbok), Green Cardstock (DCWV)
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Other: Silver Rhinestones, Mounting Tape

Love the sketch and everything about this card! The colors just pop. Larger sentiments are always hard for me to work with. You did a beautiful job Karen!
