MFT Getting Sketchy #60

Good morning!!! Wanted to share my card for the My Favorite Things Getting Sketchy Challenge #60. I actually got it done quicker than usual this week (Saturday) but didn't have time to post it until this morning! One of these days I will get it in a little quicker than last minute!!! Anyway, here is my card for the sketch:
And here is the sketch I followed:

I used, as always, another one of the Pure Innocence line of stamps. I used my Spellbinders Nestabilities to cut the circle, and stamped and colored the image with Copic markers. 
All the papers are from My Minds Eye - one of the new 6x6 paper pads I have been using lately - and LOVING!!! 
I inked the edges of the circle, then pop-dotted it from the background, and added a border cut with a Fiskars border punch. 
When I stamped the "birthday girl" sentiment, I curved it as I stuck it to my clear block, so that it stamped around the circle, instead of in a straight line.  
I didn't have a tab die cut, so I just rounded the edges off a rectangular piece of cardstock for that element of the sketch. Added some Papertrey Ink twine and button to finish it off. 
It's Monday - so I am off to get started on all of the normal things a week holds! Hope you have a wonderful Monday - and wonderful week!!!


  1. This is such a beautiful card Heather. That background paper is GORGEOUS! I just love how you pulled in so many colors from that paper. Coordinating a couple is hard enough, but pulling as many as you did is just a testament to what a skilled designer you are. Gorgeous!!!

  2. What a sweet card! I love all the detail and the button and twine are perfect! Great work!

  3. That is so adorable!! I love the birthday girl and the pastel colors!!
    TFS!! Take Care!!
