Sweet Sunday Happy Birthday

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC206.

I love the main circle on this sketch. Well frankly, I love just about any circle on a sketch, and I used this week's sketch to create a birthday card for a sweet friend who celebrated yesterday. Happy Birthday Lisa!!!

Pure Innocence Birthday Princess was a perfect choice and I paper pieced her dress and crown with patterns from the Fancy Pants Wonderful Day collection. I added sparkle to the heart and the candle flames with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen. I mounted her on foam tape for a little dimension.

For the flag accent I used the Mix and Match Banner Die-namics but I trimmed the sides because it was a little wider than I wanted. The dots in the background were stamped using Natural ink on Kraft card stock and I love the subtle look.

On the inside I added a sentiment from Birthday Greetings and another strip of patterned paper.

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.
