Wetlands Sponged Birthday

Well, last night I managed to get this card made, but was too tired to take pictures and post it to my blog.   What's up with that???  I'm supposed to be a night owl! lol  Anyway, I saw the Paper Players sketch challenge for this week and decided to use it since I thought it would be great for a masculine card.  Since I needed some colors I decided to use Hand Stamped Sentiments inspiration challenge too.  I'm not sure if we were supposed to be inspired by the picture itself, but I was inspired to use the colors in their picture.  After pulling a piece of card stock out of every color in the photo I thought, "What in the world am I going to do with all of these colors?!" lol  That's when I decided to do a little sponging again since all the colors would work well with a "picture".  In June I was doing a LOT of sponging, but because of restrictions (which I agreed to) I am not allowed to show any of the cards I made.  I thought it was time to get busy and make another one so I could show some great cards that can be made using the Wetlands set. :)  This card only took me an hour start to finish.  That's amazing for me since the whole process including looking at the challenges, pulling everything out and actually making it were all included.  Wish I could have come up with my cards this fast when I had to sponge four of them for the Inky Fingers Club!! lol


Thanks for looking and have a great day!
