PTI April Blog Hop: Tilted

   Although I am retired, I have my hand in several pots which has been keeping me pretty busy leaving little time to craft for enjoyment. The email notification regarding   PTI''s April Blog Hop caught me off guard. Panic set in as I didn't have a card or an idea. I missed last month and didn't want to miss this month too.
    The theme this month is to design on an angle.

  I am still in birthday mode since May is a very busy month for family birthdays. My twin neices will be celebrating their 14th birthday this month.  I thought this card would be great for a teenager.



   Wanting to do something quick & easy, I thought using pattern paper would be the way to go. Boy was I wrong. Lining the strips up evenly and maintaining the pattern proved to be a little tricky. Only part I messed up on was tilting the "happy" the wrong way.

   This will be my 3rd entry for CAS-ual Fridays' Birthday Bash Challenge. which is a two week long challenge to create a CAS birthday project.

This looks so simple, but I know you put a lot of love into each element. The pattern paper, angled, and matched is perfect.
