Birthday Card – FFC Sketch Challenge

Hello! I have never done a sketch challenge before but thanks to Jo at Jo’s Scrap Shack, I took the plunge and I’m so happy I did. My niece’s birthday is coming up so I decided to use the sketch as my inspiration to make Amber’s card. She is turning 11 and growing up so fast!

    • Hi Jo! I’m so tickled you mentioned your Funday Friday Challenge yesterday! Thanks for reaching out to me to give it a try! I had so much fun with this challenge and had a wonderful experience trying out a sketch for the first time. It really helped me in the design and it just came together so easily. I usually get lost in the layout so this was an eye opener for me. I can’t believe I waited so long to try out a sketch. I love your new challenge opportunities and will be looking to participating in many more that you offer. Thanks again for reaching out and encouraging me to link up. I really appreciate it and thanks for your lovely comments on Amber’s card! I hope she likes it. 🙂 Hubby said it was bright and colorful and reminded him of an ice cream shop. 🙂 Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend so far! ~Vanessa

  3. Beautiful card Vanessa!!! You did a great job with the challenge. I love this card with all the embossing. Especially the ice cream scoop. It’s so perfect!!! I’m sure Amber will love it too!!! ~Sophia
