pocket full of Birthday Wishes for HSS #55



Hi all!  Did you guys have a nice Valentine's Day?  Hope so.  Today, we've got this week's Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge - a fun pocket sketch card.  I made my card using one of my favorite color palettes - pink and green.  In this case, I used Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, and Old Olive.  Wanna see the sketch for this week?
You can substitute the pocket with any shape you'd like to use.  For my pocket, I chose half of a Top Note die.  I love the curvy top note shape, so it made just the type of pocket I was going for.  I added the fun felt flower, which I die cut using the Blossom Party Originals die cut.  I love these flowers!  And, of course,  let's not forget the fun Pom Pom embellishment - so pretty and fun!  I also used the sweet little Basic Pearls to embellish my scallop border framing my sentiment.  Isn't that Birthday Sentiment font so cute?  It's from the Bring on the Cake stamp set, which is chock full of Birthday wishes!
How do you like the card?  Would love to hear from you and get your feedback!  Here's the recipe for you:
{pocket full of Birthday Wishes}
*Stamp Set: Bring on the Cake
*Cardstock: Old Olive, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Jolly Holiday DSP

How about playing along with us this week?  Would love to see your take on the sketch!  Just head on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments to play along.  Plus, you'll get to check out all the amazing cards from the talented design team, too!  Hope you'll play this week!
