A Birthday & A Thank You

 Card #1 inspired by 2 challenges...

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge // #AHSC516 ...A sketch challenge!!  My mom was doing some Spring cleaning and found this pack of paper from over 10 years ago when we lived in VA.  She asked me if I could make some cards with it...that is why you keep seeing these papers in my blog posts.  Since she found it while Spring cleaning...I think I could also share it with the As You See It challenge!!   I didn't really use scraps but this paper packet was a product of some Spring cleaning.  LOL!!


Update: So excited to have this card chosen as a top 3 by the Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge team!!  What an honor!!  Y'all know how to make a girl smile!!

Card #2 inspired by 1 challenge...

Global Design Project // #GDP385 ...A color challenge!!  The trio of colors for this challenge: Costal Cabana, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla.  A beachy color combination in my mind's eye.

Both cards are also perfect for the Retro Rubber challenge // #rrcb202  It is an "anything goes" challenge.  But you have to use stamps that are over a year old.  Card #1...I used the Just Believe stamp set from Stampin Up that retired in 2013 (not sure what year is came out but obviously it is an oldie but goodie).  And the sentiment on Card #2 came from Stampin Up's Rose Wonder stamp set that came out in 2016.

  1. Both cards are so pretty! I love the soft springy colors on card #1! Thanks for joining us at Atlantic Hearts Sketches.

  2. I love those background papers on your card, Deb. Digging out old paper packs definitely counts as spring cleaning in my book! Thanks for joining us again at As You See It challenge

  3. This totally fits the bill, Deb! Such pretty paper! No wonder your Mom wanted you to make cards with it! I love your image panel as well. Thanks for spring cleaning with us at As You See It Challenges!

  4. Love the color mix and that beautiful image. Such warm colors to create a perfect botanical feel. Thank you, Deb, for sharing with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

  5. Now THAT'S a Spring Cleaning riot, lol. Perfect! Love this blocky layout, too - beautiful! Thanks so much for playing at As You See It!

  6. This paper is far too lovely to waste! I like the way the card has an almost quilt-like feel to it: warm, cosy and scrappy. Thanks for joining us at As You See It Challenge.

  7. Very pretty, the colours are great and your image is beautiful. Thanks for playing along with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (AHSC).
