For this week, Nicole showed us how she uses random bits of inspiration to create unique sketches as a foundation for projects. We are challenged to make a project using one of the sketches she created.
Today, we are attending a little girl's birthday party. I want to make her a card so I decided to use the first sketch as my inspiration.
And here is the card I came up with... This is the first time that I made a card with some elements of it going outside my card base. I have always thought that all my cards should fit in an A2 envelope. Since I am giving this to the receiver in person, I thought why not "go outside the box". And it feels quite liberating. I will definitely do this again.

raspberry fizz, aqua mist and harvest gold
Wow, I used 100% Papertrey products on this project. I used Papertrey's cardstock (Stamper's Select white, Harvest Gold), PP (Raspberry Fizz, Aqua Mist), stamps (Up Up and Away, Simple Sentiments), dies (Edgers #3, double ended banner) and ink (Raspberry Fizz and Smokey Shadow).
And here is what I stamped on the inside...
Thanks for looking!
