Happy Birthday

Hi everyone!  It’s time for another great sketch with My Favorite Things!

My niece’s birthday is just around the corner so I thought I’d take this opportunity to create a card for her.

I chose Birthday Girl from the Pure Innocence line.  After coloring her with Copics, I pieced her dress and added some grass with colored pencils.  I used Circle STAX to create the two circle panels and the flowers were created using Pretty Posies Die-namics.  The Kraft buttons were stitched to the centers using Hemp Cord. The birthday message was stamped onto a Sentiment Strip then tucked behind the image panel.

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from the set and added a silhouette of the girl stamped using soon-to-be released Sno Cone ink.

<—Here’s the sketch if you’d like to play along. You can find direct links to more samples HERE.  And remember, if you upload your card to the SCS gallery using the keyword MFTWSC105, you will have the chance to win up to $20 in MFT money!  One winner is chosen at random each week.  More info can be found in the MFT Forum in SCS.
