WSC88-It's your Birthday

We interrupt today's Teaser Time to bring you the weekly Wednesday Sketch Challenge from My Favorite Things.  I pulled out the super sweet and oh-so-cute Mouse in the House-It's Your Birthday. 
The paper pack, Life of the Party,  from MME was a perfect choice with the festive patterns. Plus it looks great with the MFT Kraft and Sno Cone card stocks. 

This sketch was a great excuse to pull out the JUMBO BANNER DAY STAX Die-namics. I added some stitching around the edge to give it that extra something. I added the scalloped border (included in the Die-namics set) and wrapped it up with some Cantaloupe twine. 

Ms. Mousie was stamped onto x-press blending cardstock and colored with copics. I used my CIRCLE STAX 1 & 2  for the round layers. 
 I added the sweet little birdie image and pieced up the balloon.  Check out my balloon....I made it a bit more realistic by adding a layer of Crystal Effects.  Just be sure to add it LAST and let your card sit to dry. 
Following the sketch, I needed to add a round embellie to the bottom of my card, so I pulled out the gorgeous PLENTIFUL PETALS (makes a stunning flower EVERY TIME!!!). I sponged the edges with some Groovy Guava ink and then added my beloved kraft button with a bit more of that bakers twine. 

Since the outside of my card was full of so much detail. I saved the sentiment for the inside. I created a quick, coordinating circle element (again, thanks to my CIRCLE STAX DIE-NAMICS).  I added a scallop border to match the one on the outside. The SIMPLY SCALLOP DIE-NAMICS are perfect for this job. 

 Here is this week's sketch. Have fun with it. Be sure to link up in the SCS gallery so you have a chance to win the MFT Gift Voucher.
