Birthday's Rock

There are so many challenges out there you could just spend all day doing nothing else! I sure enjoy joining new challenges; it is too bad my "real" job gets in the way! This cute birthday card is for two challenges. I recently ran across a new challenge blog that is just getting started, Get Sketchy. They are giving away prizes, always an added incentive! This card is based on their first sketch. The stamp is from MFT and is for Celebrate MFT Day, celebrated on the 20th of each month at the MFT forum at Splitcoaststampers.

The image is colored with copics. The center of the drum is pieced from some Bo Bunny DP and I added a rhinestone to the center. I used some glitter pen on the drum to add some sparkle. The curved piece in the sketch was a challenge for me! I cut the shape I decided to go with, ran it through my Cuttlebug, sponged the edges and the embossed flower with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in Worn Lipstick, and then sewed on some lace edging. I did some zig zag stitching around the edges and some more sponging, added some rhinestones to the corners and my cute sentiment. Perfect a little girls birthday!

Thanks for looking,
Melody
