SSSC60 Happy Birthday

Good Sunday Morning Peeps! It is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Today Karen has a really fun sketch for us:

I loved the sketch from the moment I saw it, you know, because of the flowers. :) I thought it would be a great time to try out my new Sizzix sizzlits Floral Fusion Die. I started out by choosing some fun colors for my flowers, melon mambo, crushed Curry and pumpkin pie. Since the sizzlits die has three sizes of flowers I cut out three in each color. I layered them up with a dimensional between each layer and added a mini black brad in the top flower. I have seen these flowers made in alot of different ways, but I like them all lined up in a row, toooo cute huh? Each flower is layered onto the card with more dimensionals. The card base is melon mambo and that is followed with some whisper white that was ran through the cuttlebug with an embossing folder. I added the tag sentiment. I thought it looked, oh you know, unfinished. So I cut out a few leaves with the Sizzlits Little Leaves Die with some DS paper from the Tall Tales DS paper pack and then three more mini black brads and finally......done.

Well, lets see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have for you today:
