Unscripted Sketch #138 Birthday Card

I need birthday cards for two grand-daughters next  week. For this first one I used the colors red, yellow,  blue, and green in the Basic Grey "Cupcake" paper pack to give the mood of "Celebration." I thought the sketch #138 from Unscripted Sketches was perfect for this card.

Instead of flowers, snowflakes, or such, I used a loopy red ribbon on a gift, party hat, and bow, three different but related elements. The gift and rabbit were stamped on Basic Grey white cs from that same packet. I colored parts of the bow and the rabbit using a Blender Pen and Cranberry Inkpad from CTMH. I also stamped the title three times and used paper piecing to make it more interesting.

The birthday bunny was stamped with Chocolate ink, cut out, adhered to Chocolate cardstock and cut out again to give it more definition on the busy papers. The sentiment that goes on the inside says, "Hoppy Birthday!"

Paper: Gasic Grey "Cupcake", CTMH Cranberry, Dutch Blue, Outdoor Denim, Chocolate CS
The stamps come from three different retired stamp sets from CTMH.
Ink: CTMH Cranberry, Outdoor Denim, Olive, Chocolate
Accessories, CTMH retired yellow gingham ribbon, Blender Pen; pop dots; (red ribbon unknown)

A great interpretation of this week's sketch. I love how you have assembled the sentiment. The wee bits of lace add a really nice touch. Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at Unscripted Sketches.
