Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone!! Happy Saturday! Ahhh...sweet, sweet Saturday! I have had SUCH a long week at work with practically NO stamping time and NO blog hopping time at all! I hope to rectify both of these this weekend!!

Here is my card for today's SFYTT! Another GORGEOUS sketch from Jen!!

For my card, I pulled out some of my Verve stamps! I have OODLES of them and hardly ever have to time just play! Needless to say, I had tons of fun making this card!!

I used Big Wish by Verve for my card and stamped the cake in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar Crest White and colored it with Copic Markers. I added some hints of shimmer with a Clear Spica Glitter Pen to the candles, icing and the flower. The flower was also stamped twice, colored with Copics and then cut out and popped up on dimensionals.

All the patterned paper is from Ducks In A Row by October Afternoon, and I used Cool Caribbean and White Cardstock. I sewed each layer on my sewing machine and added white brads. I also added some yummy satin ribbon that I knotted instead of making a bow. The sentiment, "Happy Birthday" is also from Big Wish, and I cut it out and embossed/layered it with Circle Nestabilities.

Check out what the AMAZING SFYTT sisters have done with this sketch right here!!
