Happy Birthday Sandra!

Happy Friday all! I have a lot planned for this weekend since I have four days off! Woohoo! Some of it is cleaning house, yard work, baking, and hopefully I will get to play with making some cards too. I've really been enjoying getting back into card making. I'm finding lots of stamps that need some attention like this Suzette Ketto from Stamping Bella. I made this card for a very special friend and many of you may know her...Sandra. Her birthday is tomorrow and while she is taking a break for the summer, hop on over to her blog to wish her a Happy Birthday!

Today my card uses the Sweet Sunday Sketch #118. I paired the Ketto with some My Mind's Eye Stella Rose collection. The background polka dot paper is from something like Canvas Home(?), not your normal company name. The sentiment and the newsprint on the flower is from Papertrey Ink. I used some packing paper with a PTI flower die and cut out 6 layers, scrunched it up, and spritzed it with glimmer mist. I attached the layers together with a brad. I colored the Ketto with copics, used a black spica pen on her hair and black parts of her clothes, then added diamond stickles to her dress.

I hope you have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!

This is beautiful!! I love the whole scene and it is so reminescent of a Sandra card!
But, not the one I expected to see! Maybe I can persuade you to give me the other one. teehee :)
