Happy 19th Sarah - The Sweet Shop Sketch Challenge Blog


Well today I am in Aruba. By now, I'm either very tanned, or very burned, but I can sure guarantee you that I am very broke. LOL. I made this card before I left so my daughter could have a card to open on her actual birthday. This one is from her brothers and sister. I used my darling CC Designs. I colored them with my copics to match this fantastic paper from Imaginisce called Twinkle Twirls. Doesn't that name sound delicious? I stamped out some Greeting Farm flowers and colored them to match also. Then I colored the CC Design Bench for her to sit on. I used the sketch from The Sweet Shop Sketch Challenge Blog as my guide. I added a trim of Tulips, my favorite flower, and some fabulous Rhinestones from Stamping Bella. On the inside I used a die cut from Quikcuts called cake. I am a huge Alice In Wonderland fanatic, and man did this cake remind me of the Mad Hatter's tea party. I added that in the middle and mounted it so her brothers and sister could sign it. I'm sure she will be having a fantastic time on her birthday as who couldn't in Aruba. See you all Sunday.
Hugs xx

Happy Birthday Sarah! You're one lucky girl! I don't know many ppl who get to go on a cruise with mom for their 19th. I hope you girls are having the time of your lives!! Bring some sun and warmth home for us, ok?

Carolyn, your card is so cute. Love the colors and the front is just a perfect representation of her brothers and sister! Awesome job and I agree about that cake. I bet I can guess what movie you'll be seeing when you get home!
