SFYTT Birthday Card

Good morning sunshines!!  It's a beautiful Saturday morning here in North Texas.  I've got plans to do some Christmas shopping and then hang out with Aldo's cousins in the evening, I'm looking forward to a great day!  Last night I stayed up until 2 in the morning playing in my scrappy room and then suddenly remembered Jen's SFYTT and decided to use it to make my dad's birthday card.  Here's this week's sketch:

And here's what I came up with:

As you can tell, I changed it a bit, but that's the beauty of a sketch, it's just a guideline for your imagination!  I rotated the sketch onto it's side, changed the layering and the shape of the rectangle to a circle and changed the square into a rectangle.  I pulled out some Graphic 45 and MME paper that I've been hoarding and gladly cut into it.  Originally, I had envisioned the card with a bluer motif, but I'm really happy with the results.  I stamped my image using vintage photo distress ink and die cut it with a nestie.

That's all I've got today, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
