SSSC176 - Birthday Wishes

It has been a LOOOOOOONG time since I played along with the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge.  I do love KarenGiron's sketches......and Karen Giron!  

I have new stash of Tiddly Inks stamps thanks to my new friend Christy Croll who sent me a package of her adorable stamps!   I have always loved Christy's images, but I must admit.....I prefer to ink up my stamps as opposed to using digis.  So, I was thrilled when she began selling clear stamps! She just released some clear stamp sets which I promptly ordered this morning.  :)

I am playing along with Birthday Wishes.

I stamped my image in Momento tuxedo black ink onto X-press It blending card and coloredit with copics.  I added some yellow Stickles to the candle flames.   I used the MFT Die-Namics oval STAX to cut out and mat my image.  I paired some Bazzill Card Shoppe cotton candy, marshmallow and licorice twist CS with some PP from the Carta Bella Paris Girl 6x6 paper pad.   I used a white gel pen to add some fauz stitching and added a button with some black hemp cord to embellish.

skin - E11, E21, E00, E000, R20, R30
