Scrummy Stash Cafe - sketch challenge

I love sketch challenges so I was really pleased to find one on the Scrummy Stash Cafe challenge blog this morning! Here's the sketch...



And here's the card I made from the sketch...


I used a DL card so I had to squish the sketch down a bit. The background papers are from the 'Whimsical Ladies' range by Daisy Bucket, I love the purple and the brown together! The cute hedgehog is a stamp by Penny Black which has been watercoloured. I ran the image and the purple mat though my Cuttlebug machine with Nestabilities dies. The word 'Happy' was printed directly onto the patterned paper using Word. I used a scrap of brown card to punch out the circles, then applied white rubon letters to make the word 'birthday'. Ribbon, flowers, leaves and brads are from my stash.

While I was resizing the photo, I realised I hadn't finished off the little flower centres, they have now had some Stickles glitter glue applied... oops!
