Happy Birthday Crafty Girl!

Hello!  Ok, first just let me start by saying that this card is TOTALLY outside my comfort zone LOL!!!  I love dp, and I am no good at creating my own dp, but I really wanted to try and create a true PTI type card :)  Today is my good friend and neighbor's birthday, and she loves to make cards too!  I bought her a few PTI goodies, and thought this Studio Style set would be perfect to use for her card.  The argyle type background was created using the My Time Made Easy set called Argyle Amazement.  I really like it, and think I will actually try this again really soon :)  To make the card a little more me, I added lots of stitching, cut out the jar of buttons, and popped it up.  I used Sketch Girl #16 for my layout, although I strayed a little bit :)  I hope you have a wonderful evening and thank you so much for stopping by!!!  Happy Birthday, Theresa!

Those colors are great, love all the coloring..it's so fun and busy. I would never leave patterned paper to color and do all this work that you did - even if it does look REALLY good....you're good, girl!

This is a stunning card! I love buttons layered on the stamped images and what a fun color scheme! Thanks for joining us at Sketch Girl!

Well for something out of your comfort zone girl, you blew it right out of the park!!! :) I was just looking at the Argyle Amazement set and decided I wouldn't be able to make it "work". That is FAB!!!

You're lucky to have a friend and neighbor who loves stamping too!!

This card is amazing! I love how you interpreted the sketch and the little buttons you added are perfect!

Beautiful job with the sketch. Great colours and great stamping! I'm like you with dp. It's too easy to screw it up when making my own. Plus I like hoarding paper.

Great stitching too!
