Sweet Sunday.....Birthday Wishes

Happy Sunday Peeps!!

It is time for a new sketch challenge over at the Sweet Sunday Sketch Blog.

Here is the sweet sketch we have for you this week:

I love this one, it is so up my alley, all those layers and banners, OH MY!!!
I decided to use my Stampin Up Choose Happiness stamp set, this is one I have had for a bit and had not inked up. It is such a lovely set, not sure what I was waiting for. :)
 I started by coloring my flowers. I used my markers and used Real Red and Cherry Cobbler and a bit of Daffodil Delight for the centers. You know, after studying these flowers I think they very much resemble a Marigold, so you may see these soon in a pretty orange/gold combo.
I colored the leaves with some Wild Wasabi and Garden Green Markers.
I fussy cut them all out and added them to the small front square. The flowers are on dimensionals and the leaves are tucked around and glued down.

The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler cardstock and then a layer of Early Espresso. The next is a piece of naturals White and I used the Sunburst type stamp from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set in the middle of this piece. I also stamped the little dots from the same set across the bottom. I used Crumb Cake ink that I stamped off once before stamping onto the card stock.
The small strip across the bottom is Early Espresso and I used the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set to build my sentiment. I used Versamark ink and then embossed with white embossing powder.
I added a few gold sequins and tucked in the bird from the choose Happiness stamp set. The small banners are Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso cardstock.

Be sure and head over to the Sweet Sunday Sketch Blog to see what the rest of the girls did with this fun sketch. We would love for you to join us and if you do please link up your card over on the Sketch Blog.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Stamping!!!
