365 Cards - Day 150 - Sketch

Well, today is my turn for taking on one of Pam's fabulous sketches at 365 Cards. As Pam mentioned in her post I thought that I did a "loose interpretation" of the sketch which was kinda hard for me...I generally prefer things to perfectly match! Aaaahhhhh...feel those ties of perfectionism loosening up?!? YEAH! Anyway, this creation was also done pretty quickly as I just got back from vacation on Sunday and have had to work and catch up on sleep since then so this card was kept very simple! LOVE IT!!! I've also just realized that one of my favorite color combos is light blue and light pink...I don't do it that often but I always love whatever I create in that scheme. As usual, here's the other challenges I was inspired for this one:
1. CAS-tastic Challenges - Summer inspired: well, it may look more Spring-like but the mouse makes me think of summer as they've been running around more! :)
2. Charisma Cardz Challenges - anything but a square: got to play with my brand new octagon nesties!!
3. Cooking It Up with Katie - Button me a Blue Bow: well, I think I got all three...one little button (center of flower), baja breeze base, and pink bow!
5. Crafty Creations Challenges - something happy or sweet: I'm going for happy feeling here :)
10. digital tuesday challenge - Dazzle me: got to use something else new! Fabulous rhinestone flourish!
11. Double Delight Challenges - use the image + buttons and blue
12. Little Paper Shop Blog - pink, light blue, and celery
13. OohLaLa Craft Blog - birthday
14. Party Time Tuesday - anything goes birthday
15. Rosie D's -  All Creatures Great and Small: well, I stretched this one a bit as the creature was to be the focus, but I thought the sentiment helped with that
17. The Crazy Challenge - All about Birthdays
18. ...wee memories... - stamping: the sentiment is stamped with my JustRite stamp set

Thanks for stopping by and can't wait to see what you come up with for today's sketch!!
Aloha,

Mornin'! I slept late (6:30) so I couldn't be your first commenter! Love it and put together so well in such a short time! Maybe I should set a timer and get my cards done in that time period and then I wouldn't over tax my old brain so much and over think it? Have a great day, good luck with your training...Love SAM aka MOM
