Whoops card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Lil' Inker Designs
Here's my card for the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I kept it simple here with fun patterned paper, a word die, and a coordinating sentiment stamp.

Once I'd decided on a birthday themed design, I picked this fun and festive dotted paper from an older October Afternoon paper collection.  After trimming it down to size, I placed it on a golden yellow card base.  I adhered a matching wide golden yellow strip, edged with narrow teal cardstock strips, near the bottom of the panel.  For the sentiment, I used the Whoops word die from Lil' Inker Designs to cut the word "whoops" twice, once from teal cardstock and once from craft foam.  After layering the two pieces for dimension, I adhered the word to the yellow strip.  The "I missed your birthday" sentiment from LID's Whoops stamp set was stamped to the right of the die cut word near the bottom of the panel to finish the design.  It's good to have a belated birthday card or two in my stash--hopefully I won't need to use them!

Materials Used:
Whoops stamp set, Whoops word die (Lil' Inker Designs); Tropical Teal ink (My Favorite Things); Tropical Teal and Harvest Gold cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Cakewalk 8x8 paper collection (October Afternoon); craft foam
