TSSC140.....Birthday Wishes

Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!!

Today's card share is made with Mary Jo's Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.

I really love this sketch, I love the top note die and I used some fun new stuff, new to me, the Newsprint DS paper. I used very vanilla for the base and followed that with basic black and then some Cherry Cobbler, I love this new core color, that I used the Swiss dot EF on. I cut a top note with basic black and with the Newsprint DS paper. I trimmed the DS paper so that the black would mat it. I made a sentiment flag out of black a very vanilla. The sentiment is from the Level 3 Hostess set "Occasional Quotes". I stamped that with black stazon onto the very vanilla card stock. I stamped the flower, from the "Vintage Vogue" stamp set with Cherry Cobbler ink onto some very vanilla card stock and cut it out and mounted it to the top note with some foam tape.

I added some of the new Chantilly crochet trim to the bottom of the sentiment panel, ruffling it a bit. I finished the flower with a bow made with some of the basic black 1/8 inch taffeta ribbon. The top note is also mounted to the base with some foam tape.

Well, that is all from me today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
