Amazing Birthday!

Today's card is for the new MFT Challenge Board. They've relocated their challenges to this new blog so be sure to check them out.
Here's my card I made using their sketch.
I used LJD Pretty Poppies since I haven't used it in quite some time. The card base is a very light grey, not white. I used a brown Sharpie to dot in the center and then added some gold stamen with a gold gel pen.
I added a little poppy cluster to the inside as well. I'm pretty good at neglecting the inside of my cards so this year I'm trying to focus on the whole card, not just the front.

Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit


  1. Beautiful card. I'm the same way about the insides of my cards and I'm making the effort to take more notice of the "heart of the card". Love the orange poppy and that you used some brown and gold to color it in.

  2. This is so beautiful! I really love the clean lines and your color choices. You did a great job on this weeks sketch, love it!

  3. Oh my goodness this card is stunning! I love poppies and the color
    Combo you used is so very striking! Thank you for playing along with the MFT Sketch Challenge!

  4. The placement, balance of fonts and rich color choices make this beauty shine!!!
