Sentimental Sundays

Here is my weekly post for Sentimental Sundays. This week our challenge theme is Cute and Girly. Don't forget to add your sentiment!

And Whoopsi Daisy is the sponsor. Hope you will join the fun and play along for the chance to win a prize from them.

For my card today, I've used one of the Whimsy and Stars rubber stamp sets, called Happy Birthday. She is just too cute. I pieced her dress and colored the rest with copics. The sentiment is part of the set, too.

Make sure and pop over to the Sentimental Sundays blog and check out all the fabulous creations from the DT. And during the summer we are having some bonus challenges, if you play along with the theme and add the bonus option, you can enter twice. This week's bonus is a color challenge.

My sketch comes from Freshly Made Sketches #40. I've been loving their sketches lately. They are CAS with great design elements, always very balanced. They are perfect for making some very mail friendly cards (no need for lots of postage or padded envies).

Card Recipe:
Ink: memento
Paper: copic xpress blending, SU So Saffron, Garden Green, Cosmo Cricket Tea for Two
Extras: copics, stickles, nesties, Cherry Lynn border die, sewing machine, Kaiser pearls, dimensionals
