Mail 'em Out Monday: Birthday and Challenge

Happy Monday! I thought I would combine my Mail 'em Out Monday post with my first attempt to play along with a Card Challenge. I decided to play along with the Fusion Card Challenge blog. This is a really fun blog where you can either use the sketch, the photo or combine both into a card design. I tried to combine both into my design by using the colors from the photo and several elements from the sketch. From a mailing perspective, this card is going with a gift that will be boxed off and shipped so I had the luxury of playing with more embellishments that may otherwise not make it into the standard mail. Hope you enjoy my take on the Fusion Challenge.
