Birthday Wishes

Hello!  I will start by saying that I don't think that my sister is an active follower of my blog.  A good thing since the birthday card that I made for her is the project for today!  So, to my older sister...if you are reading, stop now!  I was recently led to a fun blog that has both sketch and card challenges that I thought I would try out.  It is called Sassy Lil' Sketches and they just came out with new sketches on April 7th.  Since I have several cards to make this month, I thought I'd give it a try.  Here is the sketch:
And here is my design:
Materials Used:
  • My Little Shoebox "City by the Bay" papers.  I won this collection on MLS design team member Nicole's blog recently and I think I could seriously scrap my entire photo stash with it.  I love this collection.  Full disclosure...I pretty much love anything that MLS makes!
  • American Crafts rub-ons on the green banner
  • Tim Holtz ink
  • Helmar Adhesive 
  • The rest of the materials are from my supplies.
Thanks for taking a look!  Stop back soon, I am hoping to post more in the next day or two!
Scrap Happy~ Melissa
