SHEETLOAD SKETCH

Happy Monday everyone!!! Well, maybe not for those of you who have to get up and go to work....how well, I remember those days!!! First, I need to let you know that I will be posting blog candy...just not in this post :-). Check back later though....So, here is the card I want to share today. I used the sketch from the Sheetload of Cards ezine this month because I loved it!! I decided on my In the Stars stamp set - I really love this set because it is so fun. I didn't mean for it to look patriotic, but well, it does - LOL! I was shooting for a birthday card and still think I can get away with it, what do you think? Lots of layers on this one, and the ribbon is actually white grosgrain that I stamped with the small star, pretty cool, huh?! I have a scrapbook club date today so this will be a quick post -here is the recipe for this one. I will be back later for the blog candy post!!

I think it's a fab card Alex! I was thinking birthday as soon as I saw it. I can see how you saw it as patriotic but being Canadian I didn't see it immediately. Maybe if it had a red maple leaf in the middle...hehe!
Have a FAB day...enjoy NOT working ;)
