Wavy Blooms Birthday Card - and a new Blog Challenge Site

After pinning a few sketches on Pinterest, I decided to check out the blog from where the sketches were pinned. It is called Kathy's Waffle Sketch File. I'm not sure how long it has been around but there is a new sketch posted the first Tuesday of each month and each following Tuesday, a variation of the sketch is posted to give you some new ideas as to how to interpret the sketch. I thought I would try out the June sketch as there are still a few days to enter this challenge (the July sketch won't go up until the first Tuesday in July...)
I also decided to enter this in the Between the Folds Challenge as they are having a Birthday Challenge going on at the moment. 

It's a busy season for birthdays for me again... so another birthday card was on the roster. I am LOVING the new Wink of Stella glitter pens that I bought a short time ago. They add such a beautiful shine to everything, although that is hard to see in the photo. 

I placed the flowers where the large rectangle is located in the sketch and used a line of ribbon and a tag for the smaller rectangles. The sketch is shown under my card.

  5. Oooh, so beautiful. I had to look at the card you gave me that is just as beautiful as this one...I have to try these flowers on vellum and embossing...just so beautiful.
