FTL282 Happy Birthday

Here's my take on our sketch.  When I saw the lines on the sketch I kept thinking twine or embossed lines.  So I went with the embossed lines.  So the embellishing went onto the top sentiment panel.
All products used are from PaperTrey with the exception of the sequins in the middle of the flowers.


Happy Friday.
Here is this week's sketch challenge.

Here is my take on the sketch. It's quite straightforward. I used four .5 inch strips of patterned paper and completed the card with a simple birthday greeting.

Stamps: Stylish Sentiments: Birthday
Ink: Coastal Cabana
Paper: Soft Stone, Pistachio Pudding, White, Sweet Sorbet DSP

Happy Friday!

Here's this week's sketch! It's quite basic, is great for using a little bit of patterned paper and letting a larger sentiment take center stage.
Here's my card! I was in the mood for bright colours and polka dots. It's been probably almost two full months of temperatures of -20 or colder, so I was definitely seeking some bright, warm colours.

Stamps: Stylish Sentiments: Birthday
Ink: Smokey Shadow
Paper: Pure Poppy, Tempting Turquoise, White, patterned paper
Accessories, etc.: turquoise grosgrain ribbon
