Sweet Birthday Wishes

I made this birthday card using this week's sketch over at Card Positioning Systems.

I picked up this paper from Graphic 45's Domestic Goddess collection specifically to use with this stamp from Papertrey Ink's Everyday Button Bits set. I created my sentiment by combining parts of two different sentiment stamps from the set. I colored the stamps directly with Stampin UP! markers (Old Olive and Real Red).

The accents on the right side of the main image were cut from a scrap of the patterned paper using a 3/4" square punch and popped up using foam tape. I replaced the two square elements on the left side of the focal image in the sketch with a bow made from Papertrey Ink Ripe Avocado satin ribbon.

That's about it! Thanks for looking! Enjoy your week and be sure to check back on Wednesday for another Belli Challenge!
