Took a plunge to take a challenge

for Design Dollies and I’m going for a trifecta. They post throughout the week a theme, elements and sketch challenge and you just have at it. My goal for this year was to try more of these fantastic weekly challenges that folks have out on their blogs and, we are a month end and I FINALLY got to do one!
(Sorry for the delay. DH has kidney stones and I’ve been nurse, chauffeur, garbage gal, in addition to all the other customary roles I play. Crafting hasn’t fit well into that schedule. )

SO the challenges were monochromatic blues, birthday theme, and the sketch found here:
and here is my take on the three together. I sprayed the blue cardstock (full sheet 8.5×11″) with Pewter shimmering mist; the panel is cardstock covered with aluminum foil treated with alcohol inks in stream, bottle, and denim; and the diecuts are Cuttlekids. Would have preferred to print the sentiment but found I need a new color cartridge. Thanks for looking! P.
P.S. Still working on the Artist’s Journal. Need something else for the cover. And will soon share the pages for my Valentine’s Day chunky book. Happy Crafting!An out of this world birthday card
