My DH peeked over my shoulder, saw the "PARTY!", and did one of those dance moves where you put your fists next to each other and move them in a circle.   I had planned this as a guy card.  From DH's reaction, I'd say it will work just fine as a birthday, congratulations, or party invite.  


The papers are from the CTMH fundamentals, which are a solid color pre-embossed pattern on one side and a white and colored pattern on the other.  
(I tried to get a good photo of the embossing to show you.)

The frame and PARTY! sentiment*  are CTMH stamps. 
The paper strip weaving might look difficult, but, actually, opening 8 brads and getting them bent so they didn't stick out was even more challenging.

The sketch
 is from the current Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #148, where I'll be entering this card.  A big thanks to the gals there for including my card for last week's challenge in their Top 3.

Here are a few more challenges I'd like to enter:
A Gem of a Challenge # 163 - Boy's Birthday
Allsorts Challenge Week 352 - Sentiment in Focus
