Pocket Sketch Challenge #9: Build a Birthday Card

There's nothing like a little stomach bug to derail your week! I'm finally feeling better and trying to get caught up again.

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the last Pocket Sketch Challenge! Congratulations to Pocket Sketch Challenge #8 Winner Snapdragon Christy! I love the colors that Christy used and  how she stretched the layout to fit the stamp set she was using. Check out her Listen with the Heart card here. Christy will receive the Pocket Full of Sketches #2 book for free!

It's time for another chance to win! I have a new sketch and a new challenge for you this week. This sketch was one of the first I created for this book. The first cards that I created with this sketch used stamp sets that are now retired, so I had to make new ones when I finally finished the book last summer. I love the bright colors in the Cherry on Top Designer paper. The polka dot pattern makes this birthday card so fun!

  • 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" Crushed Curry cardstock
  • 3-1/4" x 4-1/2" Whisper White cardstock

Be sure to share my sketch challenge graphic and link back to this post so your friends know how to play along too! Link up by next Tuesday, February 23, 2016 at 11:55 pm.
