Birthday Sundaes - Challenge #45

Happy Sunday again. I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. Ours is going pretty well.

It's time for the new challenge at Birthday Sundaes. And, oh boy, what a fun challenge. Get Messy Birthday Card!! Try your hand at getting messy with inking, misting or painting on your card. This week's challenge is being sponsored by Couture Stamping by Candice Fields. Candice is a former BS design team member and is a CTMH consultant. She is offering a CTMH Fashionista stamp set. She is also offering a 10% discount to BS fans during this challenge. Email Candice directly to use this discount (stampinpearls at gmail . com).

I used a sketch again for my card. I used last week's Card Patterns sketch. I really liked the sketch and decided to use it even though I couldn't enter my card in their contest.

It's time again to be making cards for the guys I work with. The first birthdays in my group are in March. I think there are 3 birthdays in March and I'm not sure who this card will be for yet. But I will be ready.

I inked the edges of all of the little squares using a sponge dobber. I only recently got a package of these. What was I waiting for?? I then used the dobber and a stencil to create the checkerboard at the bottom of the card. I put a SRM sticker on top of the checkerboard for the sentiment.
