Epic Birthday - Whimsie Wednesday Sketch Challenge

I meant to post this a bit earlier, but been in the basement most of last night and today with Tornado watches and warnings!! I really dislike this time of the year in 'tornado country'.

Today, on the Whimsie Doodles blog, I am hosting the new Whimsie Wednesday Challenge. I came up with a sketch to challenge our readers and fans. Make sure to get all of the details HERE on how you can play along and be entered to win a FREE Whimsie Doodles image.

For my card I have used the NEW Epic Birthday image and sentiment from Whimsie Doodles. This could make a great card for a young (or young-at-heart) gamer in your life. To color the image I took cues from the paper and cardstocks I chose for the card. Using the sketch for the challenge, it all came together very easily.

Don't forget to check out the challenge details HERE and play along.
Just the details… (1) Adhered the sentiment panel and colored image with foam dots, (2) Stitched across some of the border strip and used an embossing folder on the yellow CS, (3) Added some round gems and a star to the sentiment.
