SSSC114 - Happy Birthday

 Happy Easter everyone!  Today is the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and three of the girls on our Sweet Sunday Team are celebrating their birthdays.  So in honor of that we're dedicating this SSSC114 to Karen G., Vicki and Sarah and wish them the happiest of birthdays!
For my birthday card I ended up turning the sketch vertical and using the My Favorite Things Pure Innocence stamp set Birthday Princess.  I used my Copics to color this fun image and paper pieced her dress.  I added some glitter to the birthday candles for a touch of sparkle, a cluster of die cut roses with pearl centers and at the last minute added the row of die cut grass to hide a blotch of black ink along the bottom of my image.  Isn't that always the way it goes, you get everything colored and taped and then bam a boo boo, at least I was able to cover it up.
To play along create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then go to Karen’s blog The Sweetest Thing and link your card so we can all see your creation! 

Be sure to visit each of the Sweet Sunday Stampers below for more samples using this week’s sketch!

She is just darling! I love her and she's on my ever-growing list of must have's! You made me laugh about the grass - I do that ALL the time too, so I'm glad to be in good company. Thank you so much for the birthday wishes!

Such a sweet card. The grass looks like it was meant to be there...I would have never known you put it there as a cover-up. Wonderful job!

Gorgeous card. The rosettes are to die for and the last minute addition of the grass border is neat even if it's purpose was to hide a boo boo. Never would have guessed it.
