Sketched Birthday for FOUR Challenges!

 I think I am probably like most people... super busy during the holidays.  I put the things I want to do on the back burner to complete the tasks I HAVE to do.  Well... I am on vacation, and I am spending some time playing in the studio, and I have finally broken my own record.  I have created this card, which answers the call of FOUR... count 'em... four challenges (and this beats my prior record of one card and three challenges).  Thanks to the folks at the following four blogs that created such great challenges this week that allowed me to do this.
 This card uses the sketch challenge on Freshly Made Sketches.  I have used the color challenge on Sunday Stamps (Crumb Cake, Basic Black, and So Saffron).  And the theme of the card goes with the challenge on CAS-ual Fridays (New Year's Project) and CASology's party theme for the week.
 My base is Very Vanilla.  Then I used a 4" x 5.25" layer of vanilla which I heat embossed using clear embossing powder and two stamps from the Sketched Birthday stamp set.  My banners are Crumb Cake, black, and So Saffron.  My sentiment is also froom Sketched Birthdays, stamped in black on saffron and cut out using the Bitty Banners framelits.

I usually do make two cards when I make any card, changing the layout slightly.  That's what I did here, too.  The banners were super easy to make using scraps.
Inside each is the Happy New Year message from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I punched it out using my word window and added the sentiment to the Modern Label punch.

Thanks for looking!
