Happy Birthday and Congrats

The sketch this week from Papertake Weekly:
The challenge from Off the Wall - travel themed:


For my card I used the yummy Cosmo Cricket Joyride papers, which are available from Jacksonbelle Embellishments so this also fits their challenge too. 

The sketch from Sketch Girl:

This weeks Tuesday Trigger on Moxie Fab, I haven't played in awhile and have missed it!
The color challenge from The Play Date Cafe: black, white and a splash of orange.

For my card I used some Papertrey paper, stamp and buttons along with the fabulous Unity Woodgrain stamp.  A very CAS card - no sewing or anything!

I was going to schedule this to post tomorrow but I see that the Play Date challenge closes in about 50 minutes so I had to post now, darn!
