Quick Birthday Card

OK - I admit it.  This is not my typical style of card.  BUT, all the elements were specifically requested by the buyer so we go with the flow :-)

The printed paper was from the very first pack of paper I bought nearly 9 years ago.  It ws always a bit too pastel for my taste so I never used it - in fact, I have 5 of the original 10/12 sheets from the pack still totally untouched.  And now it's only four!  Way to work through my stash LOL.  I'm happy to say that the simple act of using that long forgotten whole sheet of paper qualified me for the Use it Tuesday challenge asking use to use a sheet of uncut paper.  And the sketch is from Unscripted Sketches - love their sketches for cards.

One regret - I wish I had matted the embossed blue paper - looking at the photo it just seems unfinsihed.  Oh well - lessons learned.


  1. Very cute card, love the birds and the embossing (matted or not!) Thanks for joining us at Use it Tuesday.

  2. So glad your working your way through your stash. Thanks for joining us at USe it Tuesday. Love the little birds
