{twisted cards #45!}


The Twisted Sketches cards challenge this week is to create a card using this sketch ~ The twist ~ Use 2 any how, any way. I so love the freedom you get when you play at twisted. :) I turned the sketch on it's side and began.

I used a happy birthday stamp ---> "happy birthday 2 u"
Perfect, right?

I'm including a close-up pic of the stamped sentiment because I did something different {for me}. I stamped the image 3 times, on white, red and green cs. Then I cut out the "2" from the green cs and cut the "u" from the red cs. I also cut the stripes on the "u" from the white & green cs. I popped up the "2" and the "u" - putting the stamp together was so fun! :)

Materials: AC cs, Imaginisce B-day Bash pp & candles tied w/MS twine, AC buttons w/DMC, and stamp (when I remember who makes this stamp I'll add it in. I bought at my LSS and don't have the packaging and I had never seen this brand before).

Thanks to the fun girls at Twisted Sketches!!!

It was another snow day here today!!! I've got supper in the crock pot, homemade bread from the oven, and a fire in the woodstove. The hubs will be happy to come home tonight. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

hugs, patti
