birthday celebrations

Happy Saturday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog.

It was a great day here in the 'Burgh. My husband & I went to the Univ of Pitt basketball game this afternoon.

A friend of ours gave us tickets. What a blessing and the seats were great.

I really like going to the games. We usually get there about 3-4 times during the season. But, only if someone gives us tickets. You have to be a season ticket holder and the waiting list is forever.

The atmosphere is charged in the center. The band, cheerleaders, students all lend to the excitement. We won in overtime today so that made it an even better game.

Well, onto my card for today. This is for 2 challenges actually.

1. The Saturday inspiration challenge on splitcoaststampers. This week we visited the Nell Hill site. When I saw these black silhouettes prints I knew I had the perfect stamp to use.

2. The crazy for challenges blog had a sketch challenge this week. So I used that for my layout. Thanks to Lori Boyd for a great sketch.

I was pleased with how the card turned out.

I used kraft & black bazzill cardstock. My designer paper is from bobunny. I added some black rhinestones and ribbon and my sentiment as that's my card.

Well, it's a wrap for today from charmed life land. Blessings and hugs to all my blogger friends!!
