Stamping 411

When I saw the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge 154 , I had to play along! I love this easy sketch and I needed a birthday card so I got to work. This one came together quickly, so I made a few others to stick in my next OWH box too. I had to use one of my new Tim Holtz texture fades embossing folders (again) that my friend Heidi generously gave me as a gift. I just love love love the look of those embossing folders. I paired Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink for this card, and used a SU! image colored with markers. I dotted the tiny flowers with Hero Arts 3mm pearls. The sentiment is also by SU! The ribbon was by Offrey and I used the Bow-Easy to create the bow. How did I live without that great little tool for so long?!
Here's to wrapping up the weekend and may your week ahead be a good one!
