Happy Birthday Wishes and some Blog Candy


Hello Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using two challenges, first up was the Dynamic Duos Color Challenge:


Before you all say I used an extra color, browns is one of the allowed neutrals, I used one of the new In Colors called Baked Brown Sugar. 

Then I tried to use the sketch this week on the Freshly Made Sketches Blog:


I guess I missed a layer, but you can still see the inspiration was there. I did add my small little flags on the opposite corner too.

I had seen a card made with this technique HERE and wanted to give it a try, normally I am not a technique person but this was so easy.
I made my card very similar to the one shown just changing colors and sentiment and placement.


I think it turned out nice, what do you think? 
Leave me a comment and I will have a drawing at the end of the week for a some Blog Candy.

I wanted to thank all my loyal readers and all those who have been so supportive the past year. I continue to get e-mails daily from all of you asking how things are going and letting me know that you miss me. It means a great deal to me.
So what is the Blog Candy you ask?
 How about this a $50.00 dollar Stampin UP shopping spree. 
That's right, one luck reader will get to place a 50.00 dollar Stampin Up order with me and have it shipped free of charge to your home!! Sorry, but this has to be limited to US readers only!
Be sure to leave your e-mail addy with your comment so I can contact you!

Thanks for stopping by and 
Have a great week!!

Vicki

Fabulous card, Vicki. Love how you used the colours. I have a US mailing address so if that's okay then I'm in :) Hugs to you!

I love that card but I love all your cards. I think that you are very talented. I have read your blog for a long time but I just don't comment often. I live about 50 miles down the road from you in Everton MO. It is 30 miles west of Springfield. I have been missing you.
