I’ve combined several challenges for today’s card.  Inkspirational Challenges has an “Anything Goes” theme right now.  CAS – Colours and Sketches has provided a sketch and a monochromatic color scheme.  The OWH Midweek Throwdown presented last Wednesday called for birthday cards.  So I’ve put all of that together into one card.  I was trying to tie in the black and indigo inks together for a shadowy effect on the “Happy Birthday” sentiment; I’m not quite sure I succeeded but I guess it doesn’t look too bad.  I opted to stamp that sentiment directly onto the left bottom corner of the main image panel rather than make a smaller panel as shown in the sketch; I felt this gave a more clean and simple look to the card.


Thanks for stopping by today!
