SSSC85....Happy Birthday

GOOD SUNDAY MORNING PEEPS!!! It's my favorite time of the week, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

This week we have another fabulous sketch drawn by Nancy McKinney and all the Sweet Sunday Samples will be Birthday themed cards for Operation Write Home. You can find more info on this on Karen's Blog.

Here is this week's sketch:

Nice sketch huh? I sure struggled with this one, and I have scraped at least three other cards before getting this one finished. I did, in the end, change the sketch just a bit, using squares instead of circles and a strip of ribbon instead of the rectangle behind the squares, but I think you can still see the "bones" of the sketch in my card.

My card base is made with chocolate chip card stock and the DS paper comes from the Island Oasis paper pack. I used my scallop edge punch along the bottom of the tempting turquoise paper. The sentiment comes from the On your Birthday stamp set and the cupcakes are from the Short & Sweet stamp set. I added some silver sticky pearls and popped up the cupcakes with some dimensionals.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.

OK, let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team has in store for us this week:
