Welcome to my blog

Birthday card made today to sketch on Unscripted Sketches No 176

I made this birthday card and sent to a friend in Western Australia today.  I will enter it into challenge 176 on

This was the sketch
and the Piggyback challenge was to send the card to someone.
Every card I make is sent out to family and friends.  I run a couple card making groups and am in some other card making groups so I always have lots of birthday cards and other cards to make to send.  I don't keep any.
I used mauve card with Stampin Up sentiment, green card embossed with butterflies and punched with Stampin Up border punch.  Purple and white Washi tape.  Mauve card.  Stamped flower from Stampin Up "Mixed Bunch" set and punched out with Stampin Up punch plus plain purple flower behind.  Purple brad.
