Roel’s Birthday Card

January 30th, 2011 · 2 Comments

Roel's Birthday Card

My brother-in-law Roel is a teacher and I thought this notebook image from Blue Skies would make a nice background for the birthday message I’m sending him. I chose lined patterned papers from the Basics Kraft paper pad to add to this monochromatic brown card. The layout is this month’s Sketch For You To Try (Jen is now doing monthly sketches instead of weekly ones).

Thanks for stopping by!
