Sweet Sunday Sketch 208 {it's your birthday-gopher it}

I hope you are having a great weekend. I have this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch for you, so hopefully you'll find some stampy time and join along with us. I loved this week's sketch. The wonky panels threw me at first and then I embraced them. I know you will too. 

I just love this sweet little gopher by Sugar Pea Designs. I made a girly birthday card with him this time. I first stamped him on x-press it blending cs and then colored him up with my copic markers. I made the diamonds pink.....what girl wouldn't love some pink diamonds?!! I gave them a good coating of star dust stickles glitter.  I cut the gopher scene out and then mounted him on a scallop frame from the RC Love Note Confetti Cut die. 

I had decided to use the vellum so you could still see the strips of pattern paper I have in the background. I used two MFT Die-namics for those, Small Scallop border and the stitched strip from Blueprints 10. 
The second tilted panel ended up being my sentiment tag. I used another patter from the Flea Market paper pad to cut the small tag from Tag Me Confetti cut. I added a pink enforcer and some yummy kraft burlap twine. 

Here is this week's sketch. 

Stop by Karen's Blog for all three challenge details.
