Card Creating Tuesday March 13, 2012 A Birthday Sketch Challenge


Today is going to be a fun day.
Here are all of the great cards made by the design team. Also this week's card sketch challenge is up and you can link your card here or on the challenge blog. They are linked to each other so no matter where you enter it will show up in both places. 

 Here are the colors for today's challenge

Here is the sketch for the challenge....
You use the sketch as a guideline but you can make small adaptations.
For example where the balloons are you could use flowers or sunshine or hearts..... just 3 items to represent the balloons. 
The banners, you can change the shape of the banners, you can also change the number of them.
There still needs to be a banner of some type on the top left.
So while the sketch is a guideline it is not inspiration... it is actually a sketch to use for the placement of items, but it is flexible. As long as you have some type of placeholder for the items you should be ok.... 
The colors are in birthday banners just for fun :) 

The design team did NOT have to use the colors 
or sketch, but some of them did. 

Jenny R used three Cricut cartridges to create this card: Create A Critter, Elegant Edges, 
and Something to Celebrate.

Tiffany used 3 Birds on Parade to create this cute birthday card. To see the completed project, visit her blog at www.angel4ever-thecraftyteacher.blogspot.com.

Oh did I forget ot mention there will be FREE (Actually $.02)  items in the store over the next 24 hours....
There will only be ONE of each free item. So the first person to get them will be given the item.... check back for another free item later. The free item will be list for $.02 If I do not give it a price it will not allow anyone to get it... (I learned this before) 
The $.01 is for shipping of a prize that has already been announced. 
So the $.02 will be for the Birthday items.
 When you purchase it you will be pay your shipping it will ship out in the next few days.

You WILL have to FIND the prizes. Again there will only be ONE of the Birthday item, there will be others one at a time over the next 24 hours..... YEP, there is already one there now....
