Every Event Birthday Card Wednesday Sketch Challenge

What a fun Sketch Challenge this one was.  I LOVE all those layers.  You know me and layers!!!

My background paper is from the Cheerful Treats download.  I have printed out several sheets of this image.  I'm glad I got the download, I would have been out of that sheet by now!  

The base of my card is Concord Crush. 

I did texture the decorative paper and the white strips using the Dotted Swiss embossing folder.  I thought it could use some texture since they are just SO bright white!

The cute little snail is from the "Every Event" set.  I don't need a belated birthday card but the way my year has been going I am now ready to be late for the next upcoming birthday!!!!  Such crazy thinking, huh?  LOL

I colored the image in using markers.  I didn't really do any fancy technique to this card.  It's basically just right out of the box!  Which I know makes it easier for some of you to copy.  I love finding cards that are not real involved with special techniques and yet have lots of layers that make up for that.  This one does it!  

I had a lot of fun with this layout.  If you have time I highly recommend you giving it a try.  It does take a little while to cut all of those pieces but it is SO worth it!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Very cute. How wide were the little strips. I have such a hard time measuring spaced items like that.
