Birthday Wishes, #FMS339

I couldn't resist this weeks sketch, look how cute. You can check it out here.

I used a set that is carrying over to the new catalog, it's no longer a bundle, but it is one of my favorite sets, each stamp and die is so gorgeous. So many things you can do with it.
My colors today are: Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist, Highland Heather and Gorgeous grape, both new in the new catalog.   It goes live on Friday the 1st of June at 12pm MT.

I used the embossing folder, Layered Leaves, on a piece of white CS, then cut to fit and brushed color on them.  I like to use a big round brush for this, it comes out so much better, just lightly brush against the ink pad and then lightly across your paper. I glued my two corner pieces to my WW piece.

I die cut the flowering vine and used my double sided liner sheets, which allow for it to lay down without having to apply a glue after cutting.  It also helps the detailed dies to come apart easier.   I then added the tiny pearls and the white twine, and glued my top piece down.  I just butted the end of my flourish to the embossed corner piece so I didn't have the bulk.

My sentiment comes from a brand new set that is Mary Fish's one million Dollar  Varied Vases set.  I used another die that comes in a new set called Lake Side Framelits, there are two different sentiment framelits in that set.

I truly hope you enjoyed.   If you have trouble reaching any of us that use Blogger as I do, something is going on.  Changes are being made and we have been unable to see comments in our email as we used to.  So, I'll be checking and I assume others will be as well.    Thank for stopping by.

Love your take on the sketch. The color combination and the brushing of color across the embossed pieces is very clever. The pretty garland (for lack of a better word that doesn't come to me at this moment) is very versatile. Enjoy your day!
