Inspired Crafters Sketch Challenge

HI Everyone,

 Happy October 1st! I am so excited to be a guest designer today for a new challenge blog called Inspired Crafters where today they have created a super sweet sketch to get your crafting mojo going! I have to say that I love sketch challenges, especially when you have when you are running short on mojo! Sketches give such a solid play for you to start in creating a card - the only problem is sometimes I forget to follow the sketches perfectly - until I realize it later :) I just started a new thing - where I keep a notebook on my craft desk and draw sketches that I come across in blogland along with the URL so that if I get stuck I flip through sketches and get the mojo going :) 

 I loved this sketch because it leaves so much room for interpretation and so I kind interpreted a lot of scallops into my card today :D! I pulled out one of my favorite bday stamp sets from Taylored Expressions called Make a Wish and used the super sweet cake as my focal for the card. I colored it with copics and then highlighted it with some liquid pearls for the frosting and then sponged the edges green:
Card Ingredients:
Paper: Bazzil and Prism cardstock, Bo Bunny and  Make a Wish Project Pantry kit from Taylored Expressions
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa
Accessories: EK success scallop punch, ribbon from stash, bling, Adirondack liquid pearls and dimensionals, spellbinders 

I had so much fun creating this fun birthday card! Now if I can only remember to actually mail it on time! LOL! A huge thank you to sweetest Banu for inviting me to play along with the amazing girls on the Inspired Crafters DT! I can't wait to play again soon - the first Friday of every month they have a  brand new sketch to play along with - can't wait to see all the cards that the girls have made with the sketch and hope you have a chance to join in and play along with the fun!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Happy Friday to all and hope your start to October is awesome!
