Friday Birthday Card

Happy Friday!

Who is excited that it is the weekend?  Oh man, I am!  So thrilled that we have a relatively quiet weekend. Our morning on Saturday is super busy but then after 12:00 pm we are totally free for the entire weekend! Can't wait!!

I was able to get some crafting in again this week.  I needed to make a birthday card for a birthday party my son is going to and I had some scraps left over from a layout that I made (for Some Odd Girl digi cut files).  So I used up the scraps making this card.

I was excited because over at Sparks Paper Smooches challenge blog it was an Anything Goes week.

  I knew I wanted to use this stamp set.
I just love that little turtle!

I needed a little help becuase once again I think I used up all my mojo on my last two design team projects but I still wanted to get crafty.  So I did what I always do and look for a card sketch at my favorite card sketch blog- Retro Sketches.  Seriously, If you need a little mojo boost this is the place!  Here is the sketch.  Just perfect for my needs.
Go HERE to see all the details.

Here is what I came up with.

supply list
paper- lily bee
cardstock- Core'dinations Vintage collection, 110lb. smooth
stamps- paper smooches
ink- hero arts, memento
Spectrum Noir

I have a video that shows how I colored this cutie and put together the card.  Hope you enjoy!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with another project.  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!
