Happy Birthday!


Yes...it's me...are you shocked! It seems like forever and a day since I've made and posted something. But here I am with a card for this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge!


I followed the sketch pretty close, just a little change with the added borders. I think that's the rust showing through and lack of mojo. Some ancient paper fit my mood today along with a pretty little butterfly button I had on hand. It's threaded with some gold twine to compliment the metallic gold (4mm & 6mm) PPP sequins. My favorite Stitched Borders 2 die from PPP was used on the gingham paper. The sentiment and banner are by RC. A sweet simple card to get me back in the game!



Have a blessed day friends!
