A Little Birthday Wish–SSSC #221


Hi, everyone! It’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Karen has another classic sketch for us today that was lots of fun to play with.

My card started with a Grout Gray card stock base. To that I added a Berrylicious card stock panel that was embossed with Polka Dot Cover-Up Die-namics and added the horizontal strip. Then, on some water color paper, I stamped Patterned Triangles Background twice, once with Berrylicious ink and once with Insulation Pink ink. First I wet my paper, then I inked up the stamp and spritzed it with water, stamped, and then spritzed it again. I love the look and will be trying this with other background stamps soon!

I then stamped the sentiment, from LJD Birthday Greetings, with Versamark and heat embossed with pewter embossing powder. I popped that panel up on foam, added a Gerbera Daisy Die-namics, cut from vellum with a metallic silver center, on top of some silver thread. I finished off with sequins and clear gems.

Another sentiment from LJD Birthday Greetings was stamped on the inside with Steel Gray ink.


And that’s it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have for you today:
