WMSC42 - Birthday Wishes

I'm in the middle of getting together a few birthday cards in the mail here today. I needed another and turned to the trusty Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog for some inspiration. The sketch for WMSC42 was just perfect for what I wanted to achieve with this card. I simply asked DH for a color and went from there. It had been a while since I had done a WMSC challenge so it was high time to submit again. :) And great news to see another Mischief Maker has been added...congrats Kelly!

I did do one little trick for this card. Did you catch it? I used the March released Bitty Banners for my sentiment part of the sketch. Only thing was that I wanted it a little longer so I stamped it twice for almost twice the length. Just masking off the particular end I didn't need for each time I stamped accomplished this quite easily. I also pulled out my trusty Martha Stewart butterfly punch and some pearls for a little added touch.

Here's the sketch:

Okay, off to get these cards in the mail!

I was wondering how you got that long banner! Great idea and I love how sun-shiney your card it! Perfect for the weather we have today! :) Thanks for playing along with WMSC!

Awww Laurie, you are so sweet! That's must be why you make such sweet cards :) This is surely a bit of sunshine on paper! Yellow is my favorite, and I SO love the floral background and the little banner you made. Excellent WMSC card!
