Tuesday Morning Sketches

Hello & Happy Friday!

Today I headed to my stamp table after wracking my brain all week trying to come up with an idea to create a card for this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches.
I have to tell you that I struggled with one!
I had such a mess on my table for about 2 hours until something finally fell into place.

Here is this week's sketch and my card.

I had it in my mind to use a Martha Stewart Corner & Border punches that had been sitting on my shelf collecting dust. That part went really well....the part I struggled with was the swirl and the flowers. Guess I was just off today or something. I am happy with the way it turned out though!

Happy Birthday Card:

Stamps: Special Celebrations
Ink: Flirty Flamingo
Cardstock: Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White
Accessories: Support Ribbon Framelits, Martha Stewart Corner & Border Punches, Sizzix Swirls Die (retired), Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon, Rhinestones, Glue Dots, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

If you get a chance stop by the Tuesday Morning Sketches and play along!
They have great sketches every Tuesday!

My thoughts today....

That's all I have for today!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

This beautiful card shows no signs at all of being a struggle! I wish I'd hung onto my old MS punches because they really do make beautiful borders like this one. I love that delicate flower and how you put this whole card together! I really do like this one, and thanks for playing along with the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge again! Hope to see you playing along next week too :)

This is so pretty, Wendy! I need to give this sketch a try. Trying to decide if I want to play or go to work for some OT. They don't offer it very often. Anyway, keep those creative juices flowing! Have an awesome Saturday!
