The AnniVERVEsary Challenge for Day 3 was a sketch...and I'm always up for a great sketch. For this one, I used some old designer series paper and whipped up a card that I plan to use for an upcoming birthday. It should be pretty easy to mail, too, other than my ribbon knot! I had initially planned it as a masculine card and I think it works, but it turned out pretty gender neutral, I believe.
I had this Happy Birthday from Verve already stamped and cut out, so it was nice to be able to use a "leftover". It especially helps that it's one of my very favorite birthday sentiments - such a lovely plain jane stamp! I added some sponging to the dry embossed layer, some silver brads to the orange layer and wrapped it in ribbon...voila!
