MFT Sketch Challenge #212


I am back, again, playing along with the latest sketch at the My Favorite Things Challenge blog.  I enjoy these so much!  For this week's sketch, I went a little bit off the beaten path with it, hopefully you can still see the sketch in there, lol!  I rotated it, and went at an angle.

I used the A-dorable set, Sweet Birthday Wishes to make it, is. so. cute!!  Check it out.

I started by running a chevron embossing folder through the bottom portion of the card, at an angle.  I then sponged in some Mint ink over top of it.  I heat embossed the sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock, and adhered it at an angle.

For my little birthday girl, I stamped and die cut her, and set about coloring her up.  I didn't take a photo of the colors I used (sorry bout that), but they are pretty easy to replicate.  I also added a generous amount of Glitter over her dress.  I also die cut and colored the balloon, and placed it behind her.  

So, there you have it!  Thanks so much for joining me here today.  I appreciate it!
