Happy Birthday, plus tag and wine label




Welcome to another 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday, we have a fabulous sponsor this week, Heidi Stock Design.  I've used her Digital Paper pack Flora Flourishes and printed it onto kraft card stock.   I'll admit that my first attempt at this week's sketch was another wine label, see below, but something wasn't quite working, so I left it to simmer on my craft desk and then revisited it in the morning (giving it a good trim and a few minor adjustments).  But then I decided that the wine label needed a card (see above).   Those Three Cool Chicks are still having fun with their Let's Get Trendy Now class and this one uses woodgrain in a different way then my last project.   


But then my card and wine label decided that it wanted to be a whole party package.  Do you ever have  those times when your craft project takes on a life of it's own?


So I thought since I had out The Craft's Meow stamps with the fun Heidi Stock design paper I might as well play along with their sketch challenge, I just made a gift tag.  



And now my birthday goodies are complete, card, cute decorated bag, bottle of wine complete with fab label.  Only thing missing?  A birthday party invitation.


If you've made it this far you deserve a prize!  And speaking of prizes, 365 Cards is giving away 3 paper packs this week from Heidi's design shop.  Come play along with us for your chance to win.  If you can't wait and want to get some fabulous goodies this week she's offering a special 40% off coupon.  Please put 365365 in at checkout, good for any item in her Etsy shop.  Please leave me a comment if you get inspired by my birthday goodies, I'd love to see what you create.  And now, go check out the other 365 Cards DT gals and see what they've created.

The scored lines are a fabulous CAS touch to your fun card, and the wine label is another good one. The tag is too cute! I just love the proportion to the size of the bag, and I should mention that I love seeing Retro Foundations put to use too! Thanks for playing at TCM.
