Bitty Birthday Wishes

On Friday I checked out Charmwarms blog because I like to see the Weekend Sketch Challenge and this week Cambria was hosting it & I loved the sketch; it was one I could make a long card with which I have fun doing but it doesn't work with a lot of images.

For this card I dug out SU's Bitty Birthday; which is one of my favourite sets and stamped the images with mementos tuxedo black ink on Gina K's Pure luxury cardstock and coloured the images with my copics. The colour inspiration came from the DS paper which is also from SU it's Washington Apple.

The card base is SU's So Saffron and it measures 9x4 (fits perfectly in a letter envelope) I layered the DS paper on Pumpkin Pie and sewed the pieces together. The images are layered on Bashful Blue layered on Riding Hood Red; all cut with nesties.

I added some ultra fine glitter on parts of each image and added Bashful Blue Ribbon, the sentiment is from SU's "short & sweet" set

This should be a super quick card, except I managed to take most of the day - you know watched a little hockey and chatted A LOT on the phone, but I am sure this card could be made in no time if one actually focused (something I am lacking today!!)

Have a great Monday - hopefully we are done with the snow here!!!
