Hey there!

My card for today is for yet another sketch challenge. This time I'm playing along with the SOG monthly sketch and it sure is a fun one. I had these birthday type papers from the Party Day paper pad already pulled for a previous card but I ended up going super CAS with it so these ones didn't get used. I loved them though and thought that the sketch with it's cluster of banners would work really nicely with them. Sure, once I had the card put together, I could have chosen one of the birthday specific SOG images to go with it but something about the color scheme was really calling out for 1920's Gwen. I think it is pretty and kinda vintage/retro with the mix of red/mint/mustard so I just had to color Gwen up to match. All I can say is that I wish I looked as good as she does in a hat, LOL!

Okey dokey, time for me to get a move on.

Love the colors... but I spent some time wondering what had happened to her eyelid. That vertical brown line seems out of place... I've just checked on the someoddgirl site, it's there on the stamp : too bad, I was liking it otherwise...
