Hey there! I'm finally getting a chance to do today's sketch challenge (SC238) at Splitcoast....it looked like a really good one. I decided to make mine a birthday card as I have several friends and relatives that have birthdays coming up! This also gave me a chance to use some of my new "toys", like one of the Cuttlebug "Vintage" dies and the EK Success "edger punch". I also used one of my stamps that I've never used before....the tiny butterfly! I also want to point out the white flower which was cut using my Pazzles "Inspiration Creative Cutter" and a cutting file designed by my friend Teri (aka/tlfrank at the Splitcoast Stampers site). Thanks for the file Teri!!! Most of the panels, plus the "corner" treatment (which was designed by me) for this card was cut with my "Inspiration". The sentiment was done in Photoshop, using the "TXT LongHand" font and printed on the Bazzill using my Canon PIXMA MP530. It's the first time I've used this font as I did not even know I had it and I have no idea where I got it from, but I like it!!! This was fun and I hope you like it!
