Sweet Sunday Birthdays

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC114.

Today is a VERY sweet Sunday indeed seeing as three of our Sweet Sunday Stampers are celebrating their birthdays (I know!!! Seriously...three out of 7 people...what are the chances!!). Let's give big birthday wishes to Karen G., Sarah-Jane, and Vicki.
Happy Birthday girls!!! 

Of course I just had to make a birthday card in celebration, so I used my new Treasure Life set from Taylored Expressions. I paired it with sweet papers from the Girls Paperie.

Rather than colouring the apothecary jars I decided to paper piece them and I just love the end result! The apothecary jar dies came in handy for cutting out the images. I also used my scalloped eyelet border die along the bottom and the leafy branch die behind the flower.

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 came up with. Don't forget to leave birthday hugs on the birthday girls' blogs!!!
