Birthday Sundaes Challenge #38

Good Sunday morning. It was nice to have a little break from the routine during December, but it's also nice to get back to normal.

It's time for a new challenge at Birthday Sundaes. I was so excited to see that Whimsie Doodles is our sponsor this week. I love their images. I have a whole list of images I want to get.

One lucky winner who participates in this week's challenge will win a $10 gift certificate to Whimisie Doodles' online store. They also have a special offer for Birthday Sundae fans. To receive 10% of your Whimsie Doodles order, use the code Birthday10. How cool is that? This code will expire 30 days from today, January 8th.

So I bet you would like to know about our challenge. Well, it's an easy one. Create a Birthday card with sentiment on the front, with the option of using something new. Make sure to include in your post what new item(s) you used.

To create my card, I wanted to use a sketch. I don't use a sketch all that often any more for cards. I found a sketch that I fell in love with at Seems A Little Sketchy.

Whimsie Doodles gave the design team several images to choose from to use on our cards this week. I chose Gift Leah.

I also used a new item on this card. I used my new collection of Nikki Sivils Something for Everyone papers. I really love the blues in this paper for this week's challenge.

I hope you will give our challenge a go this week. And be sure to check out Whimsie Doodles.

Very cute card! I like your take on the sketch- I don't use sketches either (I find it so hard when I have to follow them- not sure why..)

I love how you coloured Gift Leah, and I love the patterned paper you used too! It's one of my favourite colour combinations! Great job!

Love that your little girl looks like she's going shopping - that's what I like to do on MY birthday! :-)

So happy to hear that you loved the sketch and decided to play along at Seems A Little Sketchy! Come back again tomorrow for our newest sketchy challenge.
