Quilted Birthday

Well, it's been a long time since I've done a SCS challenge but I got the chance to do the sketch for this week!! This is Sketch Challenge #238 and I love it! Had to do it! This card is about as CAS as I get, LOL!

I decided I wanted to use a few of my new In Colors, and PTI's quilt squares lend themselves to this kind of sketch so well so I paired them for this card. I'm using the new DSP called Razzleberry Lemonade and Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, and Dusty Durango card stock. I like the new In Colors--especially Rich Razzleberry--but I still miss Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze! Glad I stocked up on them! I think the mechanics of this card are pretty self-explanatory. The quilt blocks were stamped on Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with the NEW In Color Stampin' Write markers! I'm SOOOOOOOOO glad they finally did that!!!! Then matted with the three card stock colors and popped up on 3M foam squares. The ribbon is the new polka dotted ribbon in Dusty Durango. I made a couple score marks at the top and bottom and stamped the sentiment and added some Dew Drops between the lines. Pretty simple, actually, but I really like how it turned out!

I'm so glad you dropped in today!
