Happy Birthday with Freshly Made Sketches

Hello to my Stampin' Friends.

Thank you for joining me today.  I have a birthday card that is very fast to make and I used Freshly Made Sketches challenge #158 to help inspire me!

I just love participating in these challenges - they really help with that creative block and keep you from getting into a rut with layouts!  I hope that you will stop by to see all of the wonderful creations that were made with this challenge...and if you have joined me via their website - thank you!

I used some great fall colours and the fabulous patterned paper - DSP - found in the Holiday Catalogue, Colour Me Autumn!  Although, I have a bit of a confession...I didn't even notice this pattern in the pack - but I just love it!

I used the stampsets Sassy Salutations and Gorgeous Grunge.

Here is a picture of my card...

The colours I used were taken directly from the patterned paper....Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze and the 'spatter dots' were done in Crumb Cake.  I couldn't resist using a little twine to finish it off.

 Happy Stampin'
