A Birthday Sketch!

I have a very, very dear friend who recently celebrated a milestone birthday (I won't tell you what number -- her secret is safe with me! I am all about multi-tasking these days and since it is my turn to host the Lizzie Anne Designs sketch challenge this week I used that sketch to make her card.

My extra twist for the sketch was to use your Nestabilities in a creative way to make a frame for your main image panel. On my card, I used a scalloped rectangle, a classic rectangle , and a label to cutout out the center of the rectangle. I then popped the rectangle up on dimesnionals. Here is a closer look:

I used the Vintage Verses sixlet set on this card - I love this saying! I added lots of sponging with Tim Holtz inks. I had fun drawing this sketch and making her birthday card. I hope she likes it!
