Two Challenges, One Card

I was excited to work on a card for my good friend whose birthday is this weekend, and when I saw some challenges issued this week, I knew I could encorporate them together. Fantabulous Cricut (www.fantabulouscricut.blogspot.com) and Whimsical Designs (www.whimsical-designs.com) issued challenges to use the colors green, purple, and turquoise and to use a sketch template, respectively. I have never used a sketch to start a card with, and I thought it would be good for me to stretch my brain a little. Of course, it's not exactly how the template is laid out, but I figure it is close enough. I had fun with the color combo too. I used Birthday Bash for the present and tags along the side and used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots to emboss the small purple mat. Hope you enjoy!
