Sweet Birthday Wishes

Happy Easter AND todays Sweet Sunday Sketch from Karen (SSSC114) marks 3 birthdays on the Sweet Sunday Stamper - Karen G, Vicki and Sarah Jane!!!  Lynn caught this and suggested we make our sketches birthday sketches - what a brilliant idea!!  How often do 3 amazingly talented women have birthdays on the same day?!


For my card I inked up one of my very neglected Bella stamps from Stamping Bella - Sneaky Sneak Birthday Bella.  I masked the presents that are on the stamp and placed the image where I needed to work with the sketch, then stamped the presents and used them as my embellishment.  Now apparently I flipped the sketch; this was not intensional; it was how it was sitting on my desk, and I didn't clue in that the words were going the wrong way!!   I paper pieced the couch and then the pillows to give some dimension to the image and used atyou spica pens to give the image some sparkle.  The ds paper is basic grey's Life of the Party.  I actually thought to decorate the inside of my card this week; mainly because I love the sentiment that comes with Sneaky Sneak Birthday Bella and had to use it!

Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers blogs to see their creations, and don't forget to wish our birthday girls a great day!!  Remember if you play along with the sketch link your card on Karen's blog!


Happy Easter, and thanks for stopping by!
