A Serene Silhouettes Birthday

It is Wednesday and I actually had time to do this weeks Split Coast Stamper's Sketch Challenge!  It has been quite a few weeks since I have played along!  This sketch was a bit of a challenge for me but I managed to get through it.  

It wasn't all that difficult to do, it was me messing up.  First I colored in the image with markers and huffed on it, I stamped it on my card stock only to find that I should have stamped it in the middle of the strip of card stock instead of the top! UGH!!!  SO I get another strip cut and stamp it in the middle like I should have done in the first place.  After that the rest of the card was easy.

I used Wild Wasabi on the greens of the image and then I thumped in some Always Artichoke.  I colored the flowers in using Regal Rose and then colored the tips and edges in using Melon Mambo.  It gave the flowers the bit of punch they needed.  

The words are from the Happiest Birthday Wishes set.    I punched them out using the large oval punch.  I punched out 3 small scalloped ovals and set two of them on the top and bottom of the large oval. I cut the third oval in half and taped it to the sides to give that oval the look of having a scallop all the way around it.  

I did forget to add two "somethings" in the upper left corner but I like my card the way it is.  I suppose I could punch a couple of black circles and add them but I don't think so.  I think it looks fine just the way it is.  What do you think?

This was a fun sketch to play with but I don't really see myself using it much.  Though I should never say that because that is when I find myself using the same one over and over and over!!! Crazy, I know!!! LOL

I have several cards I have to make and a little project to finish up.  The project I will show you tomorrow.  I think you will find it fun to do.  It would make a wonderful Stamp Camp project!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
