This is the kids & I after riding the train to the top of Pike's Peak. (It was pretty bright up there and so they are both squinting.)
Before we left on vacation, I made a card for the current Avery Elle challenge that was based on a sketch. I'm posting it at the last minute, barely squeaking in by the deadline! I took a pretty literal interpretation of the sketch that was posted.
This was a fun sketch to play with! You know me, I went with bright colors! I do love color!
I used several Avery Elle sets on this card. My son is 10 and so his friends are starting to have birthdays and I figured having an "11" card in my stash was appropriate. Those numbers are from the "Count on It" set and I love the font for the numbers in this set. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the "Picture It" set. The little star and the sentiment are from one of my FAVORITE sentiment sets ever, "Oh Happy Day".
This sketch was perfect for using Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Mats Circles with! I love how the stitching adds a little extra pop to the circles!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
