SSSC117....Happy birthday



Good Morning Peeps!!! It is Sunday so that means it is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge Sample. 

Here is the fabulous sketch that Karen has for us this week:



Such a great sketch!! I haven't made this size card in quite some time. I used a base of Poppy Parade, 6-1/2 inches by 3-1/4 inches. I trhen layered some whipser white and the DSP here is from the Sunny Garden paper pack.

The flowers are from the Stampin' Up Flower Fest stamp set that is available in the new Summer Mini. I stamped with versmark onto poppy parade and so saffron paper and then embossed with white embossing powder. I cut out and layered up the roses. I added several leaves which are embossed with white onto pear pizzazz card stock. The sentiment comes from the retired "Something to Celebrate" stamp set.

I added some pearl swirls that I had in my stash. I really like this card, I don't usually say that but those flowers done with the white embossing just looks so cute I think!
 I wanted top make my card a stand up that opened at the top and I didn't have any card stock the size to make that work so I just improvised and cut two pieces of white 6-1/2 x 3-1/4 and joined them together at the top with a small piece of 1/2 strip folded in half and glued to both of the white pieces. Then I mounted my front piece to the base. this size card will fit into the small open ended envelopes from Stampin' Up!



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:







Well, thank you for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

I had managed to leave that set off of my wish list, but seeing you do it with white embossing is so utterly charming that I am definitely going to have to rethink my decision.
