Sketch Saturday Week 145 Challenge


This is a birthday card for a friend who will be 75 years young this week, and of course who better to celebrate your birthday with than “Stella” from Bugaboo Stamps!  The layout of the card is inspired from a sketch on the Sketch Saturday blog.

The image is colored with Copics, and I used the Spellbinders oval and scalloped dies to layer the image.  The sentiment also comes with the Stella digital image.  I’ve used two different embossing folders by Cuttlebug, and a Martha Stewart border punch for the lace.  I’ve crocheted a flower, and added a yellow gem in the center.
