Another Sketch

Have you been playing along at the new challenge blog Seize the Birthday ?  They are on to sketch #3 which means we are working with a feminine card this week. 

They use the same sketch two weeks in row with the first card being created in a feminine fashion and the next week-masculine. Isn't that a great way to build up your stash of birthday cards.

I am selling my cards in a couple of local shops and seems like lately since I wasn't playing in very many challenges I was struggling to keep enough to stock my racks, so I have made 
a decision to try and get back into playing more. It also helps with my mojo and that 
never hurts!

I have wanted to try a pinwheel for quite some time, so with that in mind I went shopping at the 
Silhouette store and found this goodie. Don't these Echo Park papers make you smile?
I created the balloons by punching a one inch circle and attaching some twine.
The button brad was a perfect color match, that also makes me happy!

I love to use some of my scraps to decorate the inside, for this I wanted to keep it clean and simple.

Don't miss out on this fun new blog, go on, you know you what to play.....

Fabulous card Patti, adore the pinwheel and the balloons (replacing the hearts in the sketch). Nice to see it interpreted as birthday and not Valentines. I instantly thought Valentines when I saw the sketch:O)
Hugs Glenda
