Birthday card for a Crafty Friend!

Hello Friends and Happy Thursday!

Today I have a card to share that I created for a dear crafting friend who just happens to be celebrating a birthday today and I've used the sketch from Mojo Monday as my starting point.  I hope she (Birgit) likes it!

Here's the sketch Julee is sharing over on Mojo Monday.

When I'm in a hurry and don't have anything in particular in mind,
I can ALWAYS pop over to Julee's blog and check out the latest sketch she's sharing
to use as my starting point.  That's what I've done today!

I've chosen to use some pretty papers that I've had sitting in the drawer for awhile now titled Pink & Blue Watercolor (couldn't find the company name on it .. hmmm).

Even though the matting looks black in the photos, it is actually navy blue and matches beautifully in real life.  Somehow my camera doesn't capture the blue colors as it should.

A sentiment by Tutti Designs, scalloped stitched square dies also by Tutti Designs
and a few Nuvo Crystal Drops and my card was in the mailbox just in the nick of time!!

Challenges to share in:
Crafty Creations July Challenge - Anything Goes
Creative Moments Challenge #195 - Anything Goes (didn't use the option of pink)
Watercooler Wednesday Challenge - All About Occasions
Word Art Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes

I hope you've enjoyed my share today!
Here's wishing you a WONDERFUL weekend ahead!
Stay safe & healthy my friends!

As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!
