I am feeling kind of cheery today, it's such a beautiful day here and I only have two more days of work until I am off for the summer, so I made a bright and cheery birthday card for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #99. Here's the great sketch by Lynn Mercurio:
That big circle in the background reminded me of the sun shining in the background of a beautiful day, so having no sun images...I used my Waltzingmouse stamps to create one!
A starburst image in Vintage Ornaments has always reminded me of a sunburst, so I stamped it in the background and added a punched circle stamped with the grid pattern from OffBeat Backgrounds over it. It looks like the sun, doesn't it?
I also used Text-It and the cute flower images from Pic-nic Patterns to create a flower garden behind a picket fence. Since it is a bright sunny day, there had to be a little rooster from French Country hanging out on the fence to wake everyone up! The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Frame It and there are some yellow rhinestones added to the flowers for a little sparkle.
Next week is WMSC #100 and there is going to be something special going on...don't know what yet, but I am looking forward to seeing what Waltzingmouse has in store for us.
