Make a Wish {SSSC182}

Hi there!  It's time for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch and we have a GREAT simple sketch for you this week!  

I took the opportunity to make a birthday card for my Dad who celebrates his birthday on Monday.  I went simple and masculine for my card.  So go easy on me :)  Masculine is difficult for me!

I used MFT's Birthday Sentiments along with the new Border It - Mod Borders.  The Die-namics dies I used are Circle STAX Set 1 and Set 2, Fishtail Flags STAX, and Blueprints 1.  You'll find a link to everything I used at the bottom of my post.

So here is his card.  You can see here that I flipped the front panel by putting the circle element at the bottom as opposed to the top.  I did that because there was too much pattern all in one place. 
  
And here is the inside:

Here is this week's sketch:

Don't forget to check out the samples from the Sweet Sunday Sketch team:


And don't forget our Guest Designer for this week:  Eileen Ng!

This seriously rocks Jackie! I saw it on FB and was instantly drawn in. Love everything about it. Masculine cards are always such a challenge but you made it look anything but!
