Ye’ Olde…. SFYTT February and Hambo

I am always in need of Birthday cards for one person or another and so this past week when Hambo Digital Stamps released the Dragon {I crack myself up!}, I totally had to use the birthday phrase!

I pulled out the Sketch for You to Try from my stack of challenges that I have printed out and was going to make it work. I colored in the Dragon with BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15 and BG18 which I actually pulled for the My Minds Eye wood plank paper in the background. I made him act as my “circle” so that he would be the feature with some twine tied behind him for interest.

The next challenge was the three circles. I decided to pull out three white buttons and tie them off with Caribbean Twine from The Twinery. I did adapt them to pull them near the top to create a balance when I added the sentiment near the bottom of the card.

Next up was the inside. I wanted it simple but to match the outside as well. I can’t leave a dark card empty on the inside otherwise it is hard to write in.

What type of card are you always creating? What types of cards are you looking for but can never seem to find?
