Sweet Sunday Sketch #122

Hi there! It's Sunday and that means it's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!! Karen has another fun sketch for us to play with this week:

I created a bright (and girly) hybrid birthday card that is definitely a bit out of my comfort zone as far as the colors go, but I think I'm liking the finished results:

I dug into my Verve stash and pulled out the Birthday Bash stamp set and paper pieced the balloons - one of my favorite looks using that set! I added a simple Birthday Wishes sentiment strip from the Birthday Phrases stamp set. And all of that bright patterned paper? That's actually printed digi paper from the Sun Kissed digi kit by Melissa Bennett (Sweet Shoppe). Overall, a super simple but fun card just in time for a 5-yr-old birthday party next weekend!

Be sure to stop by all the Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs and see what they've done with this week's sketch.
Then play along with us and post your own creation using InLinkz over on today's post on Karen's Blog!
