Birthday Wishes

Hello friends!  I'm sorry for being away this week - it's been a combination of things from my sister visiting last weekend and not having much crafty time and that most of what I've been making has been set aside to submit to magazines!  I'll have a flood of things to share once I know what hasn't been picked up...  :)  Anyway, on to the sketch and this week at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, we have this beauty from Kelly -
  
I'm a recent subscriber to the Studio Calico kits and everything from this card came in the April kit.  It is fun to get surprises in the mail - I love these papers but the colors aren't something I'd choose on my own.  I'm excited to see what's coming in the May kit - I just got my shipping notice the other day!  I started off with a couple of patterned papers from the kit and then lined the oval wooden frame with another.  I covered the seam with some washi tape and then used some butterfly stickers at the top of the oval.  I stamped the butterfly image from Nordic Spring using embossing ink onto some vellum and then embossed it with white embossing powder.  I stamped the birthday sentiment from Asian Gardens at the bottom of the card to finish it off. 

Thanks for visiting today and I sure hope you have a chance to play along!   I can't wait to see what you create with this sketch!!

Supplies:  Stamps (WMS), DP/Frame/Butterfly Stickers/Washi Tape (Studio Calico), Ink - Basic Gray (SU!), Big and Bossy (Ranger), Pearls (Beadaholique), Cardstock - Select White (PTI), Vellum (SU!), Embossing Powder (SU!)
