C4C232 - Sweet Birthday Wishes

Hello! I hope your holiday weekend is off to a great start.  If all goes according to plan, I should be sleeping soundly in Michigan when this post goes live. :) Thankfully, we don't live too far, it's only about a 10 hour trip, but going up on a Friday morning and heading back home on Sunday evening, makes for a tired ME. :)

It's the 3rd Saturday of the month, which means it's sketch time over at Crazy 4 Challenges.  To create my card, I started with a pink card base, and added some striped patterned paper to the front.  Next, I die cut a heart using a Nestabilities die, then adhered it to the card front with pop dots.  

I then stamped the banner and birthday wishes sentiment from Sweet as Candy onto mint CS, then heat embossed with white powder before trimming it out.  Next up, I die cut the sweet sentiment, and adhered it to the banner with Tombo glue.  To finish up, I adhered the sentiment to the card front with pop dots, and embellished with clear gems.

Want to play along with us this week? All you need to do is create a card/project using the sketch below as inspiration, and link up to the C4C232 blog post! :)

Have a great one!
