Birthday Bouquet Sketch Challenge - Global Design Project #gdp018

Hello there. This week is a Sketch Challenge for the Global Design Project #gdp018. The Design Team have created some award worthy projects and you have to see what they have done!  I love a Sketch Challenge, and I really love this one!
This is my creation;
A very pretty & pink 'Happy Birthday' card using the ever so beautiful 'Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper' and the 'Number of Years' stampset.
I fussy cut the flower (yes, I had to take a deep breath in before my snips touched the paper), and on the flip side of this pretty DSP is the Blushing Bride brushstrokes. I stamped the 'Happy Birthday' in Blushing Bride ink onto the striped paper to make the rectangular greetings element from the sketch.
 You might be able to see that I have covered the sentiments, and outlined the flower & leaves with a touch of Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. LOVE THAT STUFF!!! And a little bit of machine sewing to add some texture around the Blushing Bride mat.
I used up some strips of the DSP to pretty up the inside of the card. And kept the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment uninterrupted. 

Thankyou for taking the time to visit and read my blog post. I would love to hear from you if you would like to leave me a comment. D x

  1. I used the same set for my GDP, and thought to myself to begin with... do I want to fussy cut this? Nah. (lol) Love your card. :)
