A Birthday Card & a Challenge

I have a ton of scrapbooking materials and I barely use them anymore. I do not scrapbook but I love making paper crafts like cards, gift tags and whatnot. I love it when I am forced to bust out my supplies and whip up something for someone special. This time it's for the husband. It's his birthday! :)

I didn't know where to start so I needed some inspiration. I visited 365 Cards, it's a blog that challenges their readers to create a card based on the blog's featured layout or sketch. And they have a new one every single day, hence the blog name. I used to join card challenges quite often. Not to win but because it's a great place to start off and also be inspired by the works created by the readers. Check them out here.

This is the sketch I drew inspiration from:

Day 237: Super Sketchy Sunday

And here's what I came up with:


 It was pretty fun making this card. I hope to make more in the future. :)

To my amazing husband, I wish you happy happy birthday filled with lots of love! :)
