It's Your Day to Smile or Say Hooray


We celebrated my daughter's birthday today. She will be 20 on Monday, but she came home for the weekend since we wouldn't be able to go to dinner or have Betty Cake on her actual day. Before going to Red Robin I started these cards and when we returned I finished them. 

My thought was to combine the sketch and color challenge at My Favorite Things. Goal accomplished! I am pretty pleased that the colors and layout worked. 

I started with the MFT gray cardstock and coral gingham from the Tiny Check stack, and then added the white and blue cardstock.   

The colors for MFT Challenge 90.

 I used the Happy Hippo stamp set along with Spectrum Noir markers.

Rather than adding the extra papers to the scrap pile, I just made a second one. I used the MFT Scribble Rose and Double the Smile die sets.

All the pieces were cut with my Cuttlebug. I have thought about getting a Big Kick/Big Shot, but with my machine cutting just fine I have decided to wait. 

Other Challenges:

Excited that I was able to complete these two.
Stay Creative,
