"Happy Birthday

Hello everybody!  I know it has been a few days since I have posted, it has been crazy busy around my house lately.  So much to do and never enough time to do it in.  I spent a good majority of the day crafting and I got a lot of things done...YAY!  I just had to share this birthday card with you.  I felt like I was put to challenge.  I begged, borrowed, and stole this awesome pattern paper from my friend Ruthy and she said something along the lines of, "I just know that you are going to do something awesome with it and I can't wait to see."  I came up with this sketch, this is the first time I have ever sketched something out and I am super excited.  I know this will not be the last.  Without further ado, here is the sketch...

For this card, there was so much detail that went into making this card.  I used I kandee chalk from Pebbles Ink to distress the edges.  I took ordinary paper flowers and stamped different background images on them.  One of the flowers was handcrafted by Shelley from Heartstring Designs, I added a little bit of chalk to blend in with the colors used for this card.  A few brads here and there to tie the card together and a "happy birthday" sentiment stamp from Hero Arts to finish.  I hope you all love this card as much as I do.  I give permission to borrow my sketch and place it on your blog as long as you recognize in your blog where you got the sketch from.  Be inspired and get crafty my fellow scrappers.  Take care, till next time!
