Sweet Sunday Sketch192-Celebrating 40

Hello September! How the heck did that happen??? I'm not quite ready for fall, BUT I am done with this 90+ degree heat. I hope we get some cooler air, soon. 

I am happy to say that it's time for another SweetSunday Sketch. I had some fun making this card for my friend and neighbor. We helped her celebrate this weekend at her 40th Birthday Bash. I flipped the sketch to make my two dies work in my card design. 

I thought the cool die-cut word, Celebrate, from the MFT Die-namics Accent it-Celebrate dies was a great starting point for a birthday card. I cut out the number 40 with the Big Number Die-namics and stamped them some Whole Lotta Dots by Reverse Confetti in whip cream pigment ink.

 The frame pieces shown in the sketch were created with some DIY designer paper cut with the Washi Tape Die-namics. 

I used one more stamped element, from another Reverse Confetti stamp set, Celebrate Cake, to finish off the card. It's a perfect birthday sentiment, because really the day should be celebrated today & every day!  

Thanks for stopping by. I sure hope you'll join us for this go round with the Sweet Sunday Sketch.  Please use the linky tool on Karen's Blog.
