Happy Birthday

Don't you just love the colors on this weeks curtain call challenge? I don't always get to play during the week, but I was able to whip up this fun card for my Dad's birthday.
I combined it with the fun Sweet Sunday sketch challenge from Karen. This week you had to go back through all of the old sketches and pick your favortie. That was fun as well. I actually have a few more I want to do as well. I will keep you posted on that.
Here is my creation
What do you think? I am loving the soft suede on saraha sand. It is so much fun. I did keep the top simpler than the sketch, hopefully it will be fine. The last little tip I found on a blog was about layering with the PTI dies. Some said to flip the die over and trace it on your paper then cut and the result would be a fun layer. Wow am I loving this suggestion! I also love the pop the black layers gave this card.
It's a good life!
