Happy Birthday Card

It's been a while since I created any cards.   In addition to scrapbook challenges, Scrappin'-n-Chattin' also has 3 card challenges a month.  This month Abby has a doosie of a challenge.  We are to use all of the same elements on 3 totally different cards - same base, same papers, same embellishments, same sentiment.  I usually don't get around to creating the cards for the challenge.  I spend all of my spare time working on layouts.  But this was so challenging, I found myself thinking about it a lot.  So I gave it a try.

I am going to share my 3rd card right now.  I will create different posts with the others, including all 3 together on the 3rd post.

I looked for inspiration with a sketch.  I really like this week's sketch at iSpy Sketches.  I really liked this sketch and the wonderful design team inspiration.

And I found a challenge that was inspiring too...  This one is from Lawnscaping Challenges.  

I used a sheet of paper from DCWV Celebration Stack and several pieces of scrap cardstock on a white card base.  I used Pop Dots to secure the button and the sentiment strip to lift them off the card a bit.

It felt great to create some cards again.  Stay tuned for the other I created....  Thanks for looking.
