Sweet Sunday.........Birthday Wishes

Hello Peeps!!!

Here is the Sweet Sketch Karen has for us this week:

I had the urge when thinking about this card to use Elegant Eggplant, this is a color I have almost never used, not sure why, I love it!
I pulled out my Stampin Up Best of Flowers stamp set and stamped my image onto some confetti cream card stock and then colored with my aqua painter using eggplant and old olive ink.

I cut it out and then added it over my stamped circle with some dimesionals. The circle was stamped with a few of the images from the French Foliage set.

The DSP I used is from the "Fan Fair" pack.
I started the card with Elegant Eggplant card stock and then a layer of confetti and then the DSP.
The sentiment is from a retired set and I added some basic pearls in one corner and then added a small vanilla bow made with some seam binding ribbon.

Be sure and check out what the rest of the team has made with this sweet sketch:

Thanks for stopping by today
