Sketch Frenzy Friday Sketch Challenge & SSINK Friday Favorities: Endless Birthday Wishes

Good morning!  It’s Friday and we’re looking forward to another eventful weekend, plus they’re expecting rain starting tonight through Sunday morning so that should make things interesting.  Aidan and I are also volunteering at our first race, a triathlon, Sunday morning so it will be fun to see races from the other side and help cheer on some fabulous athletes, we’re both very excited.  It’s time for this weeks Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch challenge and I’ve also combined this with the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Friday favorites post.  Not only do I love the new Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack but the particular piece I used has ice cream and cupcakes (who of my favorite foods, yum!!!)  for a super fun birthday card. 

I started with Pool Party for the cardbase and then added a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.  Next I added a piece of the Cherry on Top DSP and matted it with Cucumber Crush cardstock.  For a fun decoration along the top I cut a piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock using the Big Shot and Mini Treat Bag Thinlit piece (you know this thinlit is on sale this week as a Weekly Deal, don’t miss out!!!) and added some Silver Glimmer Paper (also a Weekly Deal this week) behind the cut out hearts and attached it to cardfront with dimensionals.   

For the greeting I used the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set and stamped the greeting (love that you can build your own greeting with this set) and then punched it out with the 1 3/8” Circle Punch and matted it with Crushed Curry cardstock that was punched out with the 1 ¾” Scallop Circle Punch and attached with dimensionals.  I needed a little more bling (of course!!) so I added a couple pieces of Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim for a fun accent.

I made this for a special young lady and I think she’ll like it (can’t share more details until after she receives the card).  You can check out the other design team cards for further ideas and their favorite items and then play along (if we really get all this rain it will be perfect indoor crafting time).
