SSSC112.....Happy 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;

Loved this sketch! I started my card with a base of pear pizzazz card stock and I followed that up with some daffodil delight. The next layer is some designer paper from the Springtime Vintage pack. I used the Stampin' Up Nature Walk stamp set, I really love the flower in that set. I inked with pear pizzAzz and used my daffodil delight marker to color in the flower heads. I stamped directly onto a piece of DSP from the Botanical Gazette paper pack. I stamped the flower several times, leaving a space in the middle for my sentiment, which is from the Something to Celebrate Hostess set. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig and black stazon ink for the Happy Birthday. I love the font on this, it looks old fashion. The flowers come from the retired Pretties Kit and I used a dauber and daffodil ink to color them. I added some basic pearls in the centers of the flowers and corner of the card and a string under the sentiment. I finished it with three pieces of daffodil ribbon.

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.
