MFTWSC209 - Sending You Sunshine on Your Birthday

Another fun sketch this week over at My Favorite Things with MFTWSC209 so pulled out one of my favorite stamp sets and went on to crafting. Also, don't forget Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is still going on with "Anything Goes" week and at the Sugar Pea Design they have their monthly challenge with "Anything Goes" SPD12.

Here is my card:
Started the base with Blueprints 13 and Kraft card stock which I cut off a diagonal and since this blueprint also has a die just with the stitches, I placed it over the diagonal and put it through my big shot again to create the stitches where the diagonal is. Also, used the Gingham Background stamp along with Kraft Hybird Ink.

This is one of my favorite stamp sets called: Sunflower Sweetheart which I colored using my Copic markers and cut her out using the matching dies. Behind her, I used the Dizzy Doily Duo in shimmering white cardstock (hard to see in photo) and than added Pinking Edge Circle from Silver Glitter Paper paper to add some shine behind her. 

Last but not least, I used the Horizontal Stitched Strips in Cotton Candy and added the sentiment using the Black Licorice Hybird ink. She is popped up using foam mount which really adds to the card more. Added some grass with Gumdrop Green card stock and Gumdrop Hybird Ink.

Please make sure to stop over at the challenge sites as they have talented design teams which always have beautiful cards and terrific inspiration.
