Birthday Wishes for you... STB #18


Good morning!  It's time for a new sketch over at Seize the Birthday!  This is my second attempt at a "birthday" card...realized with the original that I added a "thank you" sentiment instead of a birthday greeting!

Isn't Jen's sketch wonderful?!  It is one of those "go to" sketches that you want go back and use time and again!  I was also inspired by the color scheme and graphical tote bag from the ColourQ #191...fabulous colors and patterns here!


So, I 'm not sure I like the placement of the twine bow on the center of the flower...thinking about pulling it off and switching it out for another silver sequin!  The gray twine was calling my name and I caved...probably shouldn't have.   


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!  Have a wonderful day!  

Stamps:  Surely Goodness, Making a Statement (Verve)
Dies:  Goodness Flowers Die Set,  Sweet Scallop Die (Verve A Cut Above), Fishtail Flag Stax (MFT)
Ink:  Black (Momento), Real Red (SU)
Paper:  Gray (Craft Junction), Story Teller (Crate Paper)
Misc.:  silver sequins, gray baker's twine, sewing machine, thread
