What a cool sketch for today’s challenge at SCS. I needed a birthday card for a friend and this turned out to be just the right sketch. The flowers are from the retired SU stamp set called “Close As A Memory” and colored using SU markers. The “happy birthday” comes from a new SU hostess set called “Express Yourself”. I used several techniques in making this card. The pink background started out as a white piece of card stock. I spritzed it with a mixture of rubbing alcohol and a few drops of SU Rose Red re-inker. The layer behind the stamped image was a piece of white embossed card stock. I ran a brayer over the piece using the SU Pretty in Pink ink pad. The accent paper was Bazzill’s “Intense Pink”. I love this card stock when I am using numerous layers. This was one of those days where most things went just right.

This is the first sketch challenge I have been able to do in about two months. I have some catching up to do. Most of the pieces of this card had been laying on my desk just waiting to be used at the right moment. I had made the flower some time ago and this was the perfect time to use it.
