SSSC142....Happy Birthday

Good Morning Peeps!!!
It is Sunday which means it's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Here is the SWEET sketch Karen has for us this week:

I thought I would take a bit of a break fro the fall and winter cards and make a birthday card. I got this old Stampin Up set a few weeks back just because I loved this bear stamp. I have a friend who Loves and collects teddies, so this will be going to her in January for her "bear"day!!

I started with a base of white card stock, 5 inch by 10 inch folded in half.
Next is an embossed layer of Calypso Coral, I embossed with the square lattice and had to run it through twice to get the whole 4-3/4 inch square piece embossed.
I then used some Pool Party and the DSP is from the Stampin Up Domestic Goddess paper pack.
I stamped the main image with black stazon onto the white card stock and colored with my aqua painter and ink pads. I added some dazzling details to the heart and the bow on the bear and a bit on the present. I matted the image with pool party card stock.
I used some Pool Party ribbon across the top and silver pearls in the corners.

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!!!
