More Birthday Greetings ...

Happy Friday!
Today's card creation satisfies both my need to do a sketch challenge (this time around the Wednesday sketch at Splitcoast Stampers) and a DT commitment card for Crafty Secrets.  Love when I can combine things I enjoy together in one creation.

This adorable little girl as well as the birthday scroll sentiment are from the Birds and Blossoms Printable Sheet and the cute little kitty is from the Altered Fairies Creative Scraps.

The sketch I'm using today is from Splitcoast Stampers (need to be a member to view & play).
I have flipped the sketch vertically for my card.  And of course added a few 'extras'.

After sitting my panels in position, I realized my focus image covered the pretty flower in this design paper so quickly grabbed my Fiskars Swivel Craft Knife and did a bit of fussy cutting so I could slide the image panel behind the flower.  Awwww that's better!
Little kitty was fussy cut and popped up also to give a little added dimension.
All the COLOR panels on this card were created with ink and a sponge dauber.

A few challenge to share in today are:
DoubleClick Challenge - Use an Animal
Inspiration Destination Challenge - Anything Goes
Scrapper's Delights Challenge - Anything Goes
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by ... I hope your weekend is fabulous!
I'm looking forward to NEXT week since the temperatures are supposed to be much higher!
I sure hope so ... I'm getting tired of these frigid temperatures!
As always . . .

Papers:  White cs, Black cs, Prima 'Jodie Lee designs' Nature Garden Collection design paper
Ink:  SU groovy guava, SU More Mustard
Accessories:  Pop Dots, White Liquid Pearls, Fiskars swivel craft knife, large sponge dauber
