Sketch Challenge JAI # 56

Over at Just Add Ink this week there is a sketch challenge for us.

Sketches are quite good when you need some inspiration as they can kick start your mind in the right direction (hopefully) when you don't know where to start.

This is my take on the sketch

I started off with a Pear Pizzazz card base and have matted with Confetti White, then I stamped on Whisper White with Concord Crush a two step flower from the Fast & Fabulous Hostess Set, I have also sponged the edges of the Whisper White with some Pear Pizzazz ink.

The Happy Birthday from the Curly Cute set was stamped in Versa mark and heat embossed with white embossing powder on Basic Black card stock which is part of a top note. Of course I have added a rhinestone.  Then I added a strip of Pear Pizzazz card stock that had been scalloped along one edge and a ribbon.

I also stamped on the inside of the card

This time I used the birthday wishes from the Occasional Quotes hostess set and the same flower  (or part of) as I had used on the front.

I hope you go and have a look at what the design team have done this week and check out all the other entries too.  Feel free to give it ago yourself.
