March brings lots of birthdays in my family.  A sister, a daughter-in-law, a nephew and two brother-in-laws all have their big day.  When I saw the fun Sketch Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers, I decided to use it for my nephew’s card.


The main image panel is popped up on dimensionals.  Since the left side of the image is over a couple more layers of card stock than the right side, I used dimensionals of varying thickness.


This allows the image panel to sit level once it is adhered to the card base.


Last month was my niece’s birthday.  Here is the card that I made for her.


Again, when adhering the main image panel to the card base, I used varying thicknesses of dimensionals to allow the panel to sit level.


Hope that everyone’s March is starting out to be a happy one!
