It won't be long before my poppies are blooming in the front flower beds.
This card was created for the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge where their theme this time is a sketch and I'd also like to share yet another birthday creation with the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge where their theme is Happy Birthday.
Yes, I must confess, that big stack of Heartfelt Creations designer papers is still sitting on my one work table so that was the direction I immediately headed for today's card. I knew I just happened to have this three-sentiment strip that I had cut from the one sheet while creating the Birthday card sets I shared the other day, and it would work perfectly with the Watercooler Wednesday sketch ... here a peek at the sketch.
Now here's a really fun 'happening'!
There is a sheet of panels that can be used immediate to create a quick and easy card but I knew I needed a circle to accommodate the sketch so after cutting the panel from the 12x12 sheet, I then grabbed my Tutti Designs 'Nesting Stitched Rectangle' dies and proceeded to die cut the image. I didn't think it POPPED enough so took the next size up die and cut a black mat for the image ... now that's better!
Of course we crafters don't waste any more than we have to ...
so the panel I cut my image from was used for the inside sentiment.
How cool is that!

Well, today is laundry day plus I have my first physical therapy session so I'd better quite playing around and get moving. I hope you like my creation today.
Have a FABULOUS day/weekend!
