Sweet Sunday.......Birthday Wishes

Happy Sunday peeps!!!

It is time for a new sketch challenge at Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Here is our sketch this week:

I started out by making my flower panel. I used some watercolor paper and the Stampin Up Retired stamp set called Because I Care.
 I love the flower in this set.
 I inked up the flower and the leaves with my distress ink pads and the spritzed them lightly with some water before stamping onto my water color paper.
I then used some Vintage Photo distress ink to color around the flower. I was going for a vintage feel.

I tried several things for the sketch and was not happy with what I was coming up with. I finally decide to use some stamps to mimic the layers in the sketch.
I used the Butterfly Basics stamp set for both of the BG stamps.
The base of the card is Crumb cake and then a layer of Early Espresso and then the next layer is some Confetti Cream card stock. I die cut this layer with a MFT Blueprint dienamic.
I finished it up with a few enamel dots.

Be sure and head over the the Sweet Sunday Sketch Blog to see what the rest of the girls did with this sketch!

Thanks for stopping by today!
