Happy Friday!
Hope you're ready for another sketch. Here's the sketch:

Here's my card:

I really like making backgrounds with this Ledger Drop stencil. I taped it down, and then blended the Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, and Evergreen Bough inks to make a gradient pattern. I was hoping that the scallops would be of a similiar size to one of my many scallop die or punches; however it was not. Instead, I cut around it. It worked out really well though!

Finally, I added some ribbon and my sentiment. I was going to do a birthday sentiment (like normal), but my husband thought that the drops looked like rain and suggested making it a cheer up sort of card. I found this sentiment from Scattered Showers and thought it seemed appropriate!

Also, I like to take my card photos on my balcony when the lighting is decent. The evening I went out to take my photos, I had a certain kitty follow me out there, and then he thought the table was a good place to be as well. Here's Rocco!

Stamps: Scattered Showers (PTI)
