Happy Birthday SCT!

Thank you for celebrating SCT's 5th birthday with us! You may have just arrived here from Summer’s blog, midway through the birthday hop.  If not, head to the Scrapbook and Cards blog for a list of designers celebrating this special milestone with SCT. 
SCT is giving away a lot of fun stuff this week.  Be sure to check out all the fun prizes up for grabs.

Today, I'd like to share a birthday card I made in honor of SCT's birthday.  I created this card using the Singin' in the Rain kit from Studio Calico that just debuted last night!  (The blue trims were from the MME Stella and Rose ribbons in the Mossy Knoll add-on from the Into the Woods kit). 

I was inspired by one of the Bonus Sketches in the special CardMaps issue using a bingo card for this birthday card.  I didn't have any in my stash but I liked the general grid pattern of the squares so recreated that idea using trims. 


Now head over to Lisa's blog and enjoy the rest of the celebration. Happy birthday, SCT!

P.S.  If you are interested in winning the new CardMaps issue full of wonderful card sketches and inspiration, just leave a comment on this post. 



























Since this is an SCT post, I hope you have checked out the Spring issue.  It's available now!  I really enjoyed my assignments this month. 

Have a great day!  Today is SCT's birthday, but in two days, my sweet baby will be a five year old.  Oh my!  I am not ready yet.

Davinie

P.S.  PSSSSSt.  This is the last day to submit a layout for the Project 12 challenge for February in March.  FYI!  :)  More info on my sidebar or the Project 12 page link up top.
