Freshly Made Sketches 282

Ahh… Thursday is always a good day for me. I had my class at the Store and that was fun! Renee left a little early, she wasn’t feeling well. I got some of my projects finished in between peeps coming in. After work I came home and had some Mac & Cheese that Jim had given me and then he came over around 7:00 and we headed over to Heather’s for Thirsty Thursday. Taylor came by and so did Stephanie, George came home too! We had a birthday cake for Taylor, Carvel, yum! Today it’s finally Friday! Lots of things to do at the Store always, but always fun! 😀

In England your 21st Birthday is a big deal so I made a card for that birthday for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black Licorice. I used the Concord & 9th Barnwood Background Photopolymer Stamp on a piece of Merman inked with Peacock for my background. The numbers are cut from a piece of Merman that I stamped with the Concord & 9th Background Blocks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Peacock and a piece of Chili Pepper to outline them. I adhered them to piece of Peacock with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive backed with some more Black Licorice. The 2 and st are adhered to the card with E-Z Runner and the 1 with 3D Foam Squares. All that was left to do was to stamp the happy birthday from the Concord & 9th Butterfly Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set in Black Licorice and the card is done! A nice different take on a birthday card thanks to the fun sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! Thanks so much for visiting! Have a fantastic Friday! 🙂
