INKspired Blog Hop - 4

INKspired Artists Blog Hop 

Welcome to our fourth INKspired Sketch Bog Hop!
This week's blog sketch was a lot of fun to do. I hope you enjoy playing along to the sketch too! You may have arrived here from Maree's blog, or if it's your first stop please be sure to ‘hop’ to all the other talented INKsired Team Members!

This week I used the Blooming with Kindness Stamp Set from Stampin'Up! 
I had been going to do a christmas card but decided to create a
 birthday card instead and just love how it came together.

I started with a vanilla base and built it up from there. I was going to use the "I love lace" stamp set as a background on this card but felt the crumb cake would look better plain, so I just laid colour on colour and sponged the edge of the cardstock in crumb cake "I love layers". I then added the basic black card stock and a piece of vanilla. The leaves are from the stamp set Kinda Electric which I stamped in crumb cake, stamped off and then stamped onto the vanilla for a softer look. I then stamped the birthday greeting in black and the flower in real red. I added a strip of DSP for a little contrast and a vintage brad. I wanted something a little thicker than the linen thread so I cut thin strips of the crumb cake to add as an embellishment.

Thanks for Stopping By!
