It's your birthday

Hello again!
I have a fun card to share with you tonight!

It's fun because of the awesome sketch I followed from Lesley over at

Freshly Made Sketches

and  I used these fun colors from

Colour Q

Here is what I came up with...


I had a hard time with the execution, because I don't like to measure. It would have turned out much more precise if I had only used a ruler! Maybe next time!
All cardstock and stamps are from Papertrey Ink. The sentiment is from Fiskars. Gems are fromMichaels. I used black ink from StazOn, surf from Color Box and tumbled glass distress ink.


Thanks for stopping by today!
