MFT Getting Sketchy #72 - Birthday Hugs and Kisses

Good morning! Well...the last week or two has been pretty eventful, and I haven't had much time to craft! Sorry I've been gone so much! I just found out for sure yesterday that we will be moving from Washington State to Wyoming sometime this summer! It is by far the scariest thing I have ever done, but it is exciting in a lot of ways too. Words cannot express how much I will miss our close knit family and friends...but I am grateful that it is only a 16 hour drive away, so hopefully visits will be frequent! So, not sure exactly how this is all going to take place, but things might be a little crazy around here for a while. I also might be doing some purging giveaways too!

Anyway - I did manage to get a card quickly put together this morning for this weeks My Favorite Things Getting Sketchy #72. Here is what I made:
And here is the sketch:

I took a few more liberties with the sketch than I usually do - but I think it is close enough! All the papers are from an older Basic Grey 6x6 paper pad, and I inked all the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in Victorian Velvet. 
I stamped one of my Pure Innocence Stamps on the most solid and plain of the pattern paper, then added some pink on the cheeks and a little bit of blue outline around the edges with my Copic Markers.
The sentiment is from My Craft Spot stamps - Birthday Wishes.  
Then I couldn't resist! I added a bow along the bottom using some ribbon and twine from My Craft Spot as well! The yellow crinkle ribbon is Sunshine Yellow, and the twine is Trendy Twine Strawberry Cupcake
Hope you enjoy my bright and fun card today - and have a WONDERFUL day!!!
