MTSC44 Birthday Wishes

Happy Tuesday!!!

It's time for another fun Sketch from Mercy!!!! She has created this awesome layout for us to try!!!


Here is my take on it.....when I printed out the Sketch for me to work on...it had a rectangle form....now that I posted it...it's square - ooops :) ......so that's why my card is not square :( .....















I used the beautiful Thoughts & Prayers Set from Stampin' Up. I turned it into a *Birthday* card by adding the sentiment from the Sincere Salutations and the Frame with Flourish Set.

The DP is from the Cottage Wall Collection. The images were colored with Orchid Opulence and Old Olive Markers.

To dress the card up I added some Silver Pearls and some yummy Plum Pudding Satin Ribbon!!!

Hope you have time to play along with us!?!?

Please make sure to check out Mercy's blog and her fabulous Muses - Pam Speidel, Cindy Haffner, Pam Varnell, Julie Lacey, Crystal Birr, Jackie Pedro, Jessica Diedrich, Shannan Teubner.
