Sweet Sketch meets Birthday Buddies!

Well it is Wednesday again and that means it is time for another Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch! I am interrupting the Whimsie Doodles Sneak Peek to show you my sketch card for this week! As you know I have been one of the Guest Designer's for Sweet N Sassy Stamps this month, so I chose to use one of their images for today's card. You can visit the SNSS blog today and for the next two days where you can see some of their Christmas images on display in a Blog Hop!




Here is Sketch 19 that Arlana created for us to use...








I decided to make a birthday card using one of the images from the Birthday Buddies stamp set at SNSS. You can purchase that set HERE.




And here is what I came up with! It took a little finagling to get the multiple prints to work well with each other. But after some creative rearranging I was pleased enough with how it turned out. I like how the light blue and red contrast with the each other and the white so well! The DP is from the Shabby Princess. The blue and red CS is from the Paper Co.




In addition to the adorable SNSS mouse image, I also used a a new sentiment stamp (Happy Birthday) that I got from a new stamp company called The Stamps of Life. These are wonderful little stamp sets that are reasonably priced and stamp beautifully!





The mouse and balloons were colored with my Copic markers. I stamped the balloons twice and then after coloring them I popped the red one up on itself to add some depth to the card.

Be sure to visit the rest of the SSW DT's blogs (which you can click on from my side bar) or head to the SSW Blog where you can see all of our creations in one place. If you see something you like, please leave a little love!! The girls always put their hearts into their creations and we all love to hear when you like what you see!

Have a Sweet day!! I need to have my bucket be overflowing with enough time to complete the projects with deadlines ending today! I hope your bucket overflows with what you need the most today too!! :-)
