Freshly Made sketches.....Birthday Wishes

Happy Wednesday Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.

What a fun sketch, I had a blast with this one.

I started with a base of Thick Whisper White card stock.

I then used a piece of DSP from the Neutrals pad, then another layer of thick whipser white card stock.

For one of the two circle elements of the sketch I first just cut a small white circle and used a stencil and some Soft Sky ink. I then cut another circle using some basic black card stock.
I then cut a small strip of gold glimmer paper to lay across between the two circle elements.

Next up is my fave element, the flower of course.

I stamped the flower from the Crazy About You stamp set three times with Calypso Coral.
I fussy cut out and layered it up cutting away a layer of petals each time.
I stacked the layers together using some dimensionals.
I stamped the leaves using some Pear Pizzazz and fussy cut them out as well.
I used a couple of glue dots to attach the leaves to the glimmer paper and then more dimensionals to attach the flower.
I used a enamel dot in the center of the flower.

The sentiment comes from the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
