CASE this Sketch Challenge #28, Global Design Project Challenge #147 and More MFT Birthday Chicks

Happy Monday!! Just popping in to post two cards that I created over the weekend. I noticed a couple weeks ago that I didn't have any more birthday cards in my stash so I decided that I need to make some. Now only if I sent them out!!

The first card I created for CAS(E) this Sketch #281.

I have had these "Farmyard Little Bits" from Hello Bluebird on my desk for a week and decided that this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch #281 was PERFECT for the little images. HOWEVER, I flipped the sketch horizontally to place the pigs where they looked best.

Can you see it? I hope so. Since I used pigs, I am also entering this into the Global Design Team Project Theme Challenge. It is a teeny bit of a stretch BUT if they don't like it, they can delete it.

Soooo, I chose to make the sentiment kind of the showcase and the little pigs the decorations for the card.

I had fun coloring the pigs in with Copic markers, some gel pen and then going over some of the features with sparkle marker and Glossy Accents.

I kind of made it more masculine by using a darker patterned paper in the background. Yes, I know there is pink on this card BUT since it is a heart, so what?

For my second card, I used a Freshly Made Sketch #345 as my inspiration. Since I didn't photograph the card, I never got it into the challenge. Hate when that happens!!

Here is my card:

I used a TON of different stamp sets for this card. MFT "Birthday Chicks" and "Celebrate with Cake"(retired) stamp set, PTI "Stylish Sentiment-Birthday,"  and Winnie and Walter "Scenery-The Party Hangover."

I am really trying to make an attempt to dig out stamp sets I have not used in a while and use them again. It was fun to create this little scene!!

I am also going to enter this in to Seize the Birthday Challenge-Anything Goes.

That is all for today!! Have a GREAT Monday!!
