Sweet Stop - Happy Birthday!

Hi there! It's time for this week's Sweet Stop Sketch.

I love this bright green that dominates my card! I used my February Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions, and the stamp is from the May Kit of the Month by Unity Stamp Company.

I embossed the black panel with my Spots and Dots embossing folder and added some white trim to it with my Fiskars Apron Lace border punch. The sentiment was printed on my computer and cut out with oval Nestabilities. I finished the card off with a flower from the kit and added a button to it.

See the stitching? That is upholstery thread. It's all I had in black because I accidentally bought that instead of regular thread one day. I was worried it was way too thick, but it turned out great. I love how bold it looks!

Be sure to hop over to the Sweet Stop blog to check out the sketch and the inspiration from the Sugar Babies: Nancy BrownRenata Elenbaas, Audrey Gonzales, Julie MasseKathy Page, Korin Sutherland, Andrea Vernagus, and Dana White.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a GREAT weekend! :)
