Sweet Sunday Wish Big

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC189.

I went the birthday route and used à la modes Big Birthday Wishes for this fun sketch. I love the flag element on the sketch!

I started with a Sweet Tooth card base then added a layer of Nightshift Blue. For the circle element I used the Open Scallop Doily Die-namics to cut out the Blu Raspberry circle and I topped it with a polka dot circle which I cut out using the Circle 2 STAX Die-namics. The patterned paper is from the Echo Park Here and Now collection.

I stamped the girl with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured her with copic markers. I fussy cut around her then added some MIX-ables Sheer Sparkle Glaze to the balloons. They're shiny with just a little sparkle...perfect!

I used the Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX Die-namics to cut out the Razzle Berry flag then stamped a sentiment from à la modes Big Birthday Wishes with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink. I stitched the flag in place then added a Lemon Drop button tied with Hemp cord.

On the inside I stamped the girl again with Razzle Berry Premium Dye Ink and added another sentiment from the set.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
