Indulge on Your Biirthday

One of my closest friend's birthday is this next week. So I decided to pull out one of my oldest stamps by Stampendous, one I still really enjoy using. Last week I mentioned a new sketch challenge site, Get Sketchy. Their first week was fun and a big success, so I used the sketch for my card is from Week 2. The bonus challenge is to use a punch.

With all the new CHA stuff arriving a my LSS, I had to pick up this new Bo Bunny paper. I just love the colors. My image is stamped with Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa, colored with my Copics and cut out with my nestibilities. I added Stickles in Scattered Straw to the frosting.

I added my paper, according to the sketch, which reminded me of quilting, so I added some stitching with my sewing machines. I did a light sponging to the edges of the paper with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink, in Tea Dye. I added lace and ribbon across the center. Then I used a punch for the flourishes, added color and some pearl rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by,
Melody
