Happiest Birthday

Happy Friday to all.  I have a birthday card for you today.  The challenge I used as inspiration for this card is the Simply Stampin' Sketch Challenge.

For the card base I chose Sahara Sand card stock.  A strip of Festival of Prints designer paper was matted with Wisteria Wonder card stock and added to the card.  A piece of Lucky Limeade card stock was first run through the Big Shot with the Large Scallop Edgelit.  I ran the same piece of card stock through the Big
Shot again but this time I used one of the Delicate Designs Folders matching the previously cut scallops.  I then cut the edge of a piece of Wisteria Wonder card stock with the Large Scallop Edgelits, used it to mat the Lucky LImeade piece and attached it to the card.  The image from the Apothecary Art stamp set was stamped on Watercolor paper with StazOn ink.  I then colored it using Blender Pens and Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade and Sahara Sand ink.  The same color markers were used to add some shading.  The sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped with StazOn ink using the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  The image was then cut using the Big Shot and the Labels Collection Framelits dies.  It was attached to a Lucky Limeade and Wisteria Wonder layer using dimensionals and all of it attached to the card.  Pearls were added to the center of the flowers for a little pizzazz.  Thanks for visiting today.  I hope you're gearing up for the weekend.

Patti - this is a beautiful card. I just love how you have used the Delicate Designs Folder and Large Scallop Edgelit along the side. It fits in really well with the sketch. Your colouring looks fabulous too! Thanks for joining use this week at Simply Stampin'
