The Card Concept, The Shabby Tea Room, Seize the Birthday & Viva la Verve {Fabulous}


Happy Wednesday! Today we have a brand new challenge over at The Card Concept. This is my last challenge with the team as a Guest Designer! It was wonderful to play along with these talented and inspiring ladies.


This week we are simply looking for a Birthday Card. I chose the inspiration photo because of the white cake mixed with the pretty flowers and the woodgrain. I did not manage to get the woodgrain incorporated in my card but I tried to capture the spring like quality of the colours. 


My sketch came from the Viva la Verve Sketches. I LOVE this sketch! It was great to use up some scraps from my bin. I also used an oval for the center to fit my sentiment which is a new one for me from Stampin' Up. I am a sucker for scrolling font! I am also linking this up at the Seize the Birthday Anything Goes Birthday Challenge. I am also linking up at The Shabby Tea Room Anything Goes Challenge.
