Sketch Challenge

This was made for SplitCoasts Wednesday sketch challenge. I'm always in need of birthday cards so here is another one. I don't know if your husband is like this but mine will tell me in the morning before he gets into the shower that he needs a birthday card for someone at work TODAY, and can I make one before he leaves. Okay I'm good but not THAT good! Especially in the morning, not a morning person.
I made the card around the decorative paper (that I love). The top of the card is Cuttlebuged with a folder to go along with the stripes. Everything was stamped with blue VersaFine and heat set before coloring with pencils, a blender pencil was used to blend the colors. Glitter glue was then added to the images in the circles.
Recipe
Stamps-Hero Arts (word stamps), Stampendous (images)
Ink- blue VersaFine
Plus- Cuttlebug, ribbon glitter glue, green sticker circles (Stampendous)

I'm so excited, I'm having tile installed in my kitchen and master bathroom, it should be done today. When we moved in we got the linoleum that came with the house since the builder was so expensive. Since our dogs sleep inside, their bed just happened to be on the seam, it started to get loose and the dogs thought it would be quite entertaining to pull it up and eat it. Luckily nothing got stuck inside of them, you'd be amazed at the things they have swallowed. Well five years later we got tile! When it is done I'll post a picture.
