Fabulous Birthday


A new year and a new sketch at 

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

My resolution has been to declutter and reorganize a bit in the craft room. Which means you find all kinds of pretty things that haven't been used.  I have begun paperclipping scraps of patterned papers and colored card stock that coordinate. When my Mojo is missing I pull these little bundles out and it really helps as the color palette is done and all that I need is a sketch. AHSC is a marvelous resource!

My design team card for your inspiration this week used one of these self-created paper bundles. I think the papers were once part of a past Simon Says Stamp kit. After embossing a back panel with Altenew's Angled Mosaic folder, I used Gina K Designs Foliage Fillers and Botanical Duo dies, a circle die and Spellbinders label die with a Gina K sentiment.

               Hoping you will play along with  sketch#506!  I look forward to seeing your creations.

                                                                 Happy New Year!


  1. Oh, Dena - I just love this! The texture, the colours, that paper... it's just gorgeous!

    1. Thank you, Alyson. And fun to be on DT team with you over at Sketch Saturday, too!!

  2. What a great idea to put coordinating papers together ahead of time! It has to be a big time-saver when it comes to creating in a snap! And of course, you had me at BLUE! So pretty!
