SSSC157......Happy Birthday

Happy SundayPeeps!!

It is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

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

As you can see I turned the sketch,  I don't usually do that but I couldn't find an image I wanted to work with that fit the other way. :)
I went kinda shabby chic/vintage with my card. I am not loving this one but since my mojo has kinda been on a vacation as of late it will have to do.
The base of the card is Soft Suede card stock and then I followed that up with some crumb cake that I embossed with the perfect dots EF. I sponged this with early espresso ink.
I used the Stampin Up "Simply Soft" stamp set along with "French Foliage and "French Script" for my main image piece. I colored with my aqua painter using Baja Blue and Old Olive for the flower.
The DSP strips are from the Pocketful of Posie pack and the sentiment is from the Something to Celebrate stamp set.

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, and Guest Designer has in store for us this week:
