365 Cards: Sketchy #20 and Basic Grey: Recycle #40

This card was inspired by the sketch on: http://365cards.blogspot.com/2011/03/day-20-super-sketchy-sunday.html

Also, the challenge on Basic Grey: http://basicgreychallenges.blogspot.com/2011/03/challenge-40-something-recycled.htmlo to use something recycled as well as Basic Grey products.  The background paper I used is from the "Perhaps" collection called "Julia" ( per739).  I recycled a button card that I found at the thrift store into my card design.  According to my friend Tammy, sewing notions are all the rage now and currently appearing on lot's of card fronts.  The sentiment matches the vintage feel of the birthday greeting.
