Seize the Birthday Challenge - A Sketch

I think this is a first since I have been with the STB Team that we have had a sketch.  What is so fabulous, is I LOVE IT!  A lot of my cards use this basic sketch - my "go-to" sketch, as I refer to it.

While the sketch doesn't specify card size, this also works awesomely for a mini slimline card.  Have I mentioned how I do adore this mini size - 3.5 x 6.5.  The larger slimlines don't impress me - the mini, I am all in!

I used some Inspired By Stamping images.  [I still am missing that company.  She had such amazing flower sets!]

Okay, that's it for me.  I hope the sketch inspires you, and you play along at Seize the Birthday Challenge.  [While the sketch is optional, being a birthday card is not.]



Thanks for stopping by~

Gorgeous colours - and colouring - of the flowers! Great choice to go mini-slimline with this.

I think I like this size too! I know I like your flowers and the beautiful colors you used!

Really pretty flowers, love the colours and the size looks great. I bought a couple of the regular slimline dies as the cards will fit DL easily purchased DL envelopes, yet to have a play though, Cathy x

I think the large slimline's are too large too! I need to follow your lead and make them smaller! Perfect card for our sketch!

I am so with you about the larger slimline cards. Too much ara to fill up. I love that you did this sketch in a mini slimline. I am pinning.

Way to go! Your 'mini' slimline is just as good as the full size version. Love how clean your design is and the flowers that are so bright and vibrant..and that you've actually stuck to the complete sketch!

Great interpretation of the sketch in a mini slimline format, Vicki! Pretty CAS design and I love the pop of yellow!
