Birthday Wishes

Helloooo! I hope you all had a wonderful week and that your weekend is off to a great start! Today I have this birthday card to share with you that I made for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge using this fabby sketch -

I started off with a few different patterned papers from the Country Estate collection and stamped the flowers and leaves on different papers. I love all of the patterns and how they tie so well with the background paper I chose. That is the fun of using sheets from a collection. Remember those old rules about patterns not going with patterns? Well, throw it out the window and have fun with your papers!! :)

I stamped the flowers from Roses in Bloom, cut both out (I cut around the interior edge to give the centers some dimension) then stamped and cut the leaves. I used a die to cut the little notebook page from some cream cardstock then stamped it with some text from Text-It and then added the sentiment from Eat Cake. I'm really happy with how soft and pretty this card came out!

If you've never played along, I encourag you to do so this week! If you don't have any WMS, there are a ton of freebies in the store that you can use! And, if you do play, you'll have a chance to be Top Mouse and win your very own set! What's better than free WMS? :)

Supplies: Stamps - Roses in Bloom, Text-It, Eat Cake (WMS), DP - Country Estate Collection (Webster's Pages), Cardstock - Select White, Vintage Cream (PTI), Notebook Die (PTI), Ink - Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip (SU!), foam squares
