Totally Stampalicious!

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!

Here is my card for today's Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT), which is being sponsored by the fabulous Totally Stampalicious!!! SO fun!!

For my card today, I used the Sweet Birthday Kids set. I stamped the little girl (how cute is she!) in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored her with Copic Markers. I cut around the balloons and they cut out and embossed the panel with Circle Nestabilities, leaving the balloons "out of the box".

All the patterned paper is from DeLovely by Cosmo Cricket...there is just something about this paper that makes me smile! I sewed each layer on my sewing machine as well.

The border was made from Die-Namics Open Scallop Die from My Favorite Things, and I added some Hot Pink Brads from Taylored Expressions as well as some buttons from my stash. The sentiment, "Happy Birthday", also from Sweet Birthday Kids, was stamped and then punched out with the Word Window Punch and I layered them under the bottom button.

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