Red & Indigo Birthday

Would you believe I now have my birthdays made up through May?  This is totally unheard of for me, even though I'm usually a most organized person.  I think, now that I've retired and don't pay as much attention to time as I once did, that I have a tendency to put things off.  You know, like wait til the very last minute.  I can't say that's a good thing that has come out of retirement.

Today's card combines two challenges, a color challenge from Dynamic Duos and a sketch challenge from Retro Sketches.  I love how bright and cheerful this turned out.

Stamp Sets:  Gorgeous Grunge, Simply Sketched (Stampin' Up!); Ink:  Island Indigo; Card Stock:  Island Indigo, Real Red, Whisper White, Real Red Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper (Stampin' Up!); Accessories & Tools:  Chalk Talk Framelits, Itty Bitty Punch Pack Scallop Circle, 1/8" Silver Brads, 1/4" Island Indigo Ribbon - retired (Stampin' Up!)

Now here are the challenges from Dynamic Duos and Retro Sketches.
