9 Nov 2018 great niece bday card using SS by LSD and HIMCR and CKC!...can you remember those years or should I say quarters and halves of years to being thought of as older?

I'm using that type of pent-up joy to create a birthday card for one of our youngest great nieces.

Here are my challenges and criteria to meet:
a. Sketchy Saturday by Laurel Seabrook Designs current sketch challenge design
b. HIMCR for its current challenge with fall colors
c. CKC for its current copy cat kit challenge using Citrus Twist's curated kit "Little Things" to inspire our November kits for layouts and other paper-crafting

HB, Graci!!!!

I reversed the paper sections for this birthday card and used leaves instead of a star. Link for Sketchy Saturday challenge:

Colors of mauve pinks, soft baby pinks, yellows, and sage greens are part of the color palette used in the inspirational kit from Citrus Twist that is showcased for November 2018 at CKC blog. 
Link for the color palette reveal photo for the CKC blog can be found here:

The browns, greens, and yellows along with the burlap texture leaf and the cardstock patterned leaf shape reinforce the fall colors theme for this week at HIMCR blog. Link for the current HIMCR challenge week post is here:

More color craziness to come from my part of the USA heartland, Becca S


  1. What a sweet card Becca - love your colours, and the texture the burlap gives is wonderful

  2. Hey, Maxine! Graci got her card and thanked us! She loved it! Pinks her favorite color!

  3. Beautiful card! Pretty paper and your leaf if gorgeous.

    1. Cindy! Thanks! Burlap leaf was an October forgery. The papers look so good together in person; more vibrant than cell phone camera allows.


My heartfelt thanks for visiting my blog.
