"LIFE...Live like you mean it"

Wow, I'm on a roll for this week.  Four posts in one week.  Does this mean that I am coming out of my slump?  I sure hope so.

Today I have a card that combines three different challenges.  Maybe it's the challenges that are inspiring me to create more this week. Don't know but I sure am glad to be back at it again.

First I started with the sketch.  I found this one at Cas(e) this Sketch.  I have never used any sketches from this site before so one again I hope I have done them proud.
Next I decided to take a look over at Dynamic Duos.  They always have such great inspiration for colour combinations.  This week the challenge was to use a colour combination from the past year.  I went with DD#41.
Lastly I went with a very clean and simple card once again and turned to Less is More for further inspiration.  This week they want a single layer card with a coloured card base, so I decided to go with Pool Party as my card base.
My plan is to use this card for a co-workers birthday.  The sentiment is truly his way of thinking about life.  So Happy Birthday Izzy.

Thanks for stopping by.
