Happy Birthday Sketch CCMC325

Thursday is the day for our Create with Connie and Mary Challenge and we have a great sketch to use for our project!  This one is simple and oh, so versatile!  I decided to use a star in my background in place of the circle and the Star Embossing Folder was perfect for adding "starry" texture to the background!


I took my color scheme from the Sweet Taffy Designer Paper; I love these bright colors for happy occasions like birthdays!  This card will be for a sweet child's birthday and I think he will enjoy the colors and the sparkle of the Gold Glimmer Paper stars!



I diecut the Daffodil with a Star Framelit then added the Paper Piercing.  Stampin' Up!'s piercing templates make it SO easy and I really like the additional texture the piercing adds.

Stamps:  Endless Birthday Wishes
Inks:  VersaMark
Paper:  Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie.  Sweet Taffy DSP.  Gold Glimmer Paper
Accessories:  White Embossing Powder, Eclectic Paper Piercing Pack, Paper Piercing tool, Stars TIEF, Star Framelits, small Star Punch from Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

Here again is the super sketch we have this week for CCMC325: 

I can't wait to see what YOU do with this sketch!  It can be Clean and Simple or you can do something different and add more layers and embellishments, whatever appeals to you!

Hop on over to the Create with Connie and Mary blog to see what the other very creative members of the Challenge Design Team did with this sketch;  I'm always inspired by their work!  Then whip up your own design and upload it to the CCMC website; the guidelines for the challenge are all there too!

Thanks for visiting today!  Happy Stamping!
