Card Patterns #99


Howdy friends!
Thank you all for your sweet comments on my guest blogger spot and tutorial/challenge. I hope some of you will play along!

Today's card is for Card Patterns Sketch No.99. My bloggy friends Lindsay and Amy are both on the DT and I couldn't resist playing along with them this week! It's a fun sketch!


This card is for my great-nephew, Joey. He was born on his dad's birthday almost 10 years ago! (tomorrow's card will be my nephew Nicholas' BD card *wink*) It was hard not to add bling, bows and scallops...I kept reminding myself it was for a boy!

Thanks for stopping by today, 
Have a good one!
Stamps: Big Birthday Wishes, Polka Dot Basics II, By the Numbers PP (PTI)

WOW! You totally nailed this one, Dana. I find cards for boys this age to be nearly impossible, but this is perfection. A fun but masculine color combo, awesome wood buttons, and just the right finishing touches. This goes straight into my inspiration folder!
