Happy Tuesday

This month, I'm a Guest Hostess at Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps for their Sketch With a Twist Challenge.  I followed this week's sketch, and the "twist" was to Use a Fancy Border.  I have two different "fancy" borders.  One is a MME patterned paper cut-out, and the other was made using an EK Success border punch.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from MFP.  I also used some new My Mind's Eye patterned papers I got at Michaels.  I really like them.  Lots of machine stitching, some Baker's Twine, and a coupe of flowers.  Pretty simple.
I'm entering this card in these challenges:
City Crafter Challenge Blog - Challenge #151 - Woodgrain

Catered Crop - Flower Power
Pretty Little Ribbon Shop's Challenge Blog - Challenge #20 - Happy Birthday!
I hope that you will take a moment this week to stop by and play along with us at both Mark's Finest Papers (Sketch With a Twist) AND Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes.  We would LOVE to have you join us.
Have a wonderful Tuesday,....and don't forget to count your blessings!
