Sweet Sunday Sketch #12

Hi There!!!

Again... I think I'll just make the deadline for Karen's gorgeous Sweet Sunday Sketch.
When I saw the sketch for this week it actually screamed out BOYS card!!! Just so happens we have Shane's Dads birthday coming up so that's exactly what I used the sketch for (Oh I think it's pretty safe to say he WONT be looking on my Blog before his Birthday, so it's pretty safe to share it with you.

Today has been one of those days... you know THOSE days where.... my little darlings won't have their naps... well not without PROTEST... the computer is running on SUPER SLOW time, my paper cutter needs a new blade so it cuts my DSP nicely, and nothing seems to be going right!!!! So I'm not 100% happy with my card, but the fear of completely messing it up took over, and I decided this will just have to do today, so I hope you like it.

First up here is Karen's gorgeous sketch!!!

And here is my card:-

I'm still waiting on all my NEW goodies to arrive, so I'm using up some of my recently retired stamps and paper.
I've used Choc Chip as the base and layered it with some Outlaw DSP (yep retired), the stamp set I've used is 'It's Your Birthday' (ah huh... retired). I saw a card here, which is where I got the idea for the layering of the stamps.

Thanks for stopping by... I'm off now to try to but Ella back down for a proper nap this time!!!!

Here's what I used:-

Stamps:- It's Your Birthday (retired)
Card:- Choc Chip, Outlaw DSP
Ink:- Sage Shadow, Creamy Caramel, Choc Chip
Accessories:- Dimensionals.

It's a good thing you are a day ahead of me, then, ha! I love the layered stamps, that's so fun - and to think I JUST sold that set... booo... I love this card, very nice job (no pink to be found, that must have hurt a teeny tinsy bit).
