It's All in the Numbers

This week's challenge at H2H blog is all about the numbers.  The goal is to use numbers in your project.  Here is the link to Heart 2 Heart.  I made this card:
I also used the Mojo Monday sketch for the design of today's card.  Click Here to go to their blog.  Here is the sketch:
  I used X7140B Roxie Paper Pack for my card.  I also used C1440 Take a Picture for the corner piece and the swirls.  I used the beautiful flower from D1470 Dreams Come True set.  I stamped it 3 times using the rock-n-roll method with Smoothie ink first then rolling the edges in Tulip ink before stamping onto the Colonial White paper.  I then cut it out into the three layers inked the edges using Desert Sand ink and stacked them back up using 3-d foam tape.  The sentiment "Happy Birthday!" and "you" came from D1475 Card Chatter-Birthday stamp set.  Finally the number 2 is from C1401 Friendship alpha small.

Be sure to check out what the other wonderful artists have done by checking out both blogs.
Have a great day!

It's a Sketch Challenge

Hi Friends
This week it has taken me all week to get the challenge up on my blog, so I apologize for the delay.  Here it is....
It is a sketch challenge!  Oh, how I love those.  I don't know why, but I usually can just whip out the card with ease when someone else tells me how it is suppose to look.  On to the challenge:
Here is my card:
I used the wonderful new Dreamin' paper pack X7142B. I just love those colors. The background piece is actually one full sheet then I put the blue leaf pattern over the top of that backing the two strips with some chocolate cardstock. Then for the horizontal line I used a piece of off-white twill ribbon and two Pacifica colored brads from the fanfare brads. For my center image I used a very old retired stamp set for the journaling frame which I stamped in a second generation Pacifica Blue so it would be a little bit lighter. Then I stamped the Birthday sentiment from D1475 Card Chatter - Birthday set. The flowers are from the D1306 Treasure Life stamp set. I really love that stamp set. I just matted that with chocolate cardstock and attached it using 3-D foam tape. Pretty simple, but a lovely card.  I made it for an upcoming birthday.  Is it yours?
