Birthday Wishes Challenges


Here is another card that I made this weekend for some challenges - the Pals Paper Arts PPA63 Color Challenge (Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait and Melon Mambo) and Get Sketchy (GS#59) sketch challenge. As soon as I saw the color combo, I thought of this patterned paper I had in my stash. I paired it up with this Lockhart Stamp Company Rose of Sharon image, which I colored with Copic markers and sponged with  So Saffron ink.

The Martha Stewart butterfly border punch is a new purchase that I had to play with and the sentiment is from PTI's Birthday Basics set. For the butterfly button, I tied it with some DMC floss and left the ends long enough to make antennae. Pretty simple and cheery!

Thanks for stopping by!
