FMS 99 - Happy Birthday

I made a card to enter in the Freshly Made Sketches #99 challenge.  I'm finding I really
like the sketches on that blog.  I don't think my style is typically "clean" because I
sometimes have issue with knowing when to stop adding things to my cards.  Anyway-

Here's the sketch

and what I came up with.

I usually don't do a lot of stamping, but decided to stamp the flowers, heat emboss
them and cut them out.  Embossed the white card stock with a Sizzix Texturz plate,
used a Martha Stewart border punch, stamped and die cut the sentiment with the
Sizzix Banner #2 set and added a few pearls.  I like the way it turned out and hope
you do too!


  1. There is so much fun texture and fun patterns on this card. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. This is so pretty! Love how you used the flowers and the little jewels. Glad you joined us this week at FMS!
