SSSC108...Birthday




GOOD MORNING PEEPS!!! It's Sunday which means it is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

This is the fabulous sketch Karen has for us this week:




I flipped the sketch to fit the image I wanted to use. Spring is definitely here in Southwest MO, we can still have some cool temps, but my daffodils are up and blooming a sure sign to me that spring is here. I LOVE daffodils, so I had to pull out this retired stamp from Stampin' Up, Abundant Hope. I stamped the flowers onto some White card stock with some Momento tuxedo black ink and colored them in with my copics. I like the traditional daffodils but my favorite are the ones with orange centers and also the ones with the pink centers. So I colored these to mimic some growing in my yard right now.

The base of y card is made with Crumb Cake and then I followed that with some pumpkin pie and then the DS paper is from the SAB Ice Cream Parlor paper pack. I then used my circle cutter to cut a 4-1/2 inch circle of crumb cake. I embossed this with two different EF. I used the Vintage Wall and the Square Lattice Embossing folders. I added the pumpkin pie satin ribbon for the circle element on the sketch. I added a button threaded with some twine to the bow. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. I added some silver pearls to the corners and called it done!

Hooray for spring in MO!!! You lucky girl!!! Almost all our snow is gone...just little patches of it left in the forest behind our house but there aren't any flower popping up yet. Your card definitely makes me feel more springy though! Love how you flipped the sketch and the little silver pearls are perfect accents!!
