A big birthday!

A fun, quick card today that is a real departure from my usual style. It is a simple sketch, based on the current sketch for the Sketch Sunday challenge over at Tiffany’s blog, I heart art, but the papers, colors and motifs are much more vintage than my usual style. The recipient has definitely influenced the ‘look’ – I think she will appreciate the vintage motifs.

I was inspired by Dawn McVey‘s card on page 78 of Paper Crafts Card Creations – so this card is also going into the ‘Source of Inspiration’ challenge over at Wee Memories. 

The color scheme of browns, blacks and creams also works perfectly for the ‘Coffee & Cream’ challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog!

Thanks for stopping by!
