Birthday Wishes

I loved this simple sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 as soon as I saw it...

I do love a nice symmetrical sketch! I can't cope with complicated sketches with odd squiggly bits on them!

I used some grey and white polka dot patterned  paper for the background. The stem and leaves are part of a Memory Box die. I cut the original flowers off and instead used some flowers created from a set of Marianne dies. I used dull silver brads for the centre of the flowers and some pink flat backed pearls as embellishments. I also added some tiny die cut butterflies with pearl 'bodies'. The sentiment was created in Publisher using Marketing Script font.

My colour combo was inspired by today's challenge at Just Add Ink

I'm also playing along with the challenges at:

Moving Along With The Times #118 - flowers
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #555 - Birthdays (Happy 11th birthday!!) WINNER
