Sketch Frenzy Friday--A Sale-A-Bration Birthday Card

Hi Stampers:

Well, it's Friday again and time for another GREAT sketch! Today's sketch is by Angela Walters and here it is:



And here's my card and I'm pretty happy with it!

When I first saw the sketch, I knew immediately what I was going to do with it--totally unusual for me! The Ice Cream Parlor colors and accessories are so bright and cheerful, that I just had to use them along with the So Happy for You and Punch Bunch stamp sets. ALL of these items are available as free items--you get 1 with every $50 purchase. OK-so on to the colors--Pacific Point cardstock base. The HB scalloped square image was stamped in Pacific Point, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight on Whisper White cardstock, then punched out with the Scallop Square Punch. The birthday wishes sentiment was stamped in Pacific Point on Whisper White, then cut out, corner rounded and sponged with Pacific Point. All of the stamped items were mounted on the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals. I then embellished with Ice Cream Parlor buttons and ribbon. The card was easy, peasy after I spent a couple of hours searching for my Pacific Point cardstock. Organization and neatness are not my strong points.
