This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Birthday Card - Scrap Africa Sketch Challenge no.32

Hello Everyone

I hope you are having a good and restful weekend! I had a class yesterday morning and then met up with Svetlana Austin in the afternoon, as she was visiting family for the weekend! It was really lovely to meet her, even if just for a short time! ;-)

We have a new challenge over at Scrap Africa and it's a gorgeous sketch created by Marta. She also created a super video tutorial, which you really do not want to miss.  Please pop over and have a look.

I needed to make a card for a friend for her 50th birthday and so I used the sketch.

I used Graphic 45 Secret Garden Papers and accents and did some fussy cutting too.

Di Garling is also our Special Guest Designer and she created a beautiful page for us. So pop gonna love it!!!! It would be awesome if you could play along too.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a super Sunday!
