Today I'm linking my card to two challenges, color throwdown and Mojo386. This is the last week of the month and the MOJO Monday sketch is always the Tall and Skinny layout. I usually have a difficult time with this size, but I think today I was able to get a decent card created using it. Aren't the colors for the color throwdown just beautiful? So bright, fresh, "Springy" and fun to work with.
I chose to use the inside sentiment on the outside of this card to utilize the full length of the Project Life Card & Label die. Both the outside sentiment and the inside Happy Birthday greeting is from the hostess set, Bloom with Hope. I really like the graphic look of the flowers and script in this set, but I'm not sure why I haven't used it more.
