Birthday Wishes



Good morning all! Just a quick pop-in today. This is for Sasya's Sketches...can you believe we're already up to no. 24?! I know, right?

(Somewhere in blogland there is a similar card...I saw it forever ago and it stuck in my head, so if it was yours, let me know and I'll give proper credit!)

This was the first time I've ever made those tiny roll up flower buds. I don't recall where I learned them, but I just cut out a simple swirl, like this one (only thicker), 
and started rolling up from the inside. When I got to the end I glued it and stuck a pearl in the center. Simple and easy!

Stamps include script background from TAC, Turning a New Leaf and Mixed Messages from PTI.


Join us for this week's sketch at Sasya's sketches!
Thanks for stopping by!
