A Happy Birthday - Sweet Sunday Sample

Good morning! This week, I used the (awesome) Sweet Sunday sketch that Karen had given us to put together a special little something for my niece who is turning two today!

And what paper and stamps go better for a little birthday card for that cutie than My Mind's Eye Animal Crackers and Pure Innocence stamps? I reached for Pure Innocence: Something Special Just for You and customized the card by adding Bling 'Bers (sorry currently out of stock....). I've used some black, white and bright for my colors, I love the contrast with that POP of black against the pinks.

I've finished the card off inside and out with a little technique that Michele and Jody use that I just love... the image was stamped softly on the inside, almost like a watermark, and I've added one of the coordinating sentiments to the inside. This is a great way to add in more of the patterned paper from your stash, and I'll admit it, my messy handwriting always fouls up the insides of my cards. So, now its nice and neat!

Now the fun part, be sure to hop around to visit all the girls on the Sweet Sunday Team to see how they've interpreted this week's sketch. And, of course, be sure to add YOUR sample to Karen's inLinkz so we can see where this sketch takes you!
