Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge

I thought I would try  my hand at the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge - and this is #187 - Karen is a crazy girl!! and totally dedicated to her sketches!

Ron's brother is turning 60 on July 1st - yep! a Canada Day baby! so I took the opportunity to put together a birthday card for him. And look at me go - it's a masculine card - difficult for me!

I haven't EVER used my  MFT Die-namics Jersey and Stamp Set, although I have had it for at least a year -  BAD!  
From Millan.Net

 I die-cut the man's T-shirt and then stamped the #60 in Orange Fizz ink and then arranged the letters to say "SHARP" and stamped it in Hot Fudge ink.  

The lines on the T-shirt are from Lollipop Additions -Love, and I stamped them along the bottom and sleeves of the shirt.

My paper is from Studio Calico - Here + There 6x6 paper pad and I chose to sew around the edges of my panels - the same as Karen - yes I am a copy cat at times.....

I added brads in the corners but still thought that it looked kind of I swiped around the edges with white paint!

For the inside of the card I die-cut the Die-namics Party Banner from more Here + There designer paper. 

The sentiment was stamped with Orange Fizz and Hot Fudge ink using the Clearly Sentimental Birthday Sentiments.

I used the smallest little sentiment to stamp along the top of the banner.

Thanks for coming around today - I'm off to play! 


  1. Brilliant card Bonnie! Love the jersey and the paint swipes on the front and the inside is perfection with the celebrate stamped above the banner!

  2. Love your scrappy card! Like how you used the white paint.
