Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
I hope your week is off to a great start. Most of my Monday was spent out and about, running errands and trying to get a few things checked off of my to-do list. After calling it a day I headed upstairs to my studio to play along with the current Sketch Challenge going on at My Favorite Things. As usual, the card that I had planned in my head looked nothing like what was happening on my desk! So, after coloring, cutting, tossing it in the trash and starting over a few times I finally have a completed card. I was about to head off to bed when I thought I would check the deadline for this challenge...and at just over 9 hours left I decided I better hang in there, get photos taken and get this one posted. Guess I'll just have to sleep in tomorrow morning!
My youngest grandson, Brayden, has a birthday coming up soon so this one is for him....
I used lots of my new goodies from My Favorite Things on this sweet card:
* Card base and banner - Blueprints 13
* Balloons on background - Clowning Around stamp set
* Bears and birthday cake - Birthday Bears stamp set
* Stars on banner - Star Celebration stencil
I used Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste and the Star Celebration stencil to create the background on my blue banner.
I added Clear Wink of Stella Glitter to all the balloons and the birthday cake.
Brayden will be turning 4 years old next month and I love that this birthday cake image just happened to have 4 candles on it - how perfect is that?!
Even though it's a little late in the ballgame I thought I would share the sketch with you. I love the sketches from MFT and like to refer to them when my inspiration needs a jump start!
Okay, that pretty much wraps things up for me! I'm off to link up my card then head to bed. I'll be sleeping in tomorrow...so have a great day and I'll see you soon!
