Birthdays Are Like Flease

Summer is flying by!  It is August 1st and that means it is time for a new Sketch Challenge at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog.  Our lucky winner of the July Sketch is Karen Ladd.  Congratulations!! 


This month it could be you!!  We have an easy sketch and you have a whole month to enter this challenge.  We can’t wait to see what you create!!  For some inspiration head to the SNS blog to see what some of our designers came up with.



For my card I just couldn’t resist playing around with this a bit.  I flipped the sketch to create this fun multi-fold birthday card. 



I created my own “fence” that opens to reveal this sweet pup hiding in his doghouse.  This image is called Ruh-Roh.  How perfect.  I added some Swanky Gray Sparkle N Soft to make him fuzzy and gave him a bright red, sparkly collar by adding Fire EngineRed glitter with a glue pen.  The sentiment is Birthdays-Fleas, also from SNS. 


When you open the next flap it reveals another sentiment, Birthday Wishes-Vertical, bordered by dog bones from the Grover Stamp Set.  I added a little Log Cabin Embossing Powder to the bone borders and around the edges.  The little paw and bone buttons go great with this animal themed card. 

Speaking of animals, guess what happens tomorrow?  Our Furry Friends Blog Hop begins on the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog.  Start there and hop to each of the designers’ blogs to see all the great SNS animal images and creative ways to use them.
