Make a Birthday Wish - Fun and Festive Card using Unscripted Sketches #194

Welcome to Sketch-It Saturday with Unscripted Sketches and today's new sketch #194. This week we also have a PIGGYBACK Challenge to use stickers. For today's project, I have shopped in my jumbo ziplock bag-o-scraps and my accordion file of stickers to create this fun and festive birthday card. 

I love the challenge of dumping out my scrap bag and seeing what I can find to create with. The pink solid background paper and the border stripe are scraps of My Minds Eye patterned papers. The "happy birthday to you" and the polka dot pattern I received in a scrap swap. To go along with the color palette, I found some fun metallic star and balloon stickers and some grosgrain word ribbons I have turned into stickers with my Xyron sticker machine. All of the elements are held together using Miracle Tape.

**A TIP** use your pens and markers to add some details to make elements "POP". The sketchy words in the "happy birthday to you" were already sketchy and I went around "happy" and "you" with yellow and blue Ranger Distress Marker to highlight those words. I also used a white gel pen to add some sketchy outlines around the star stickers on the border strip and hand doodling confetti pieces in the background. I also used a black Millennium Pen to add strings to my balloon stickers.

All I have to do is write a sentiment on the inside - and this card is ready to send!

What is Sketch it Saturdays at Unscripted Sketches? Every Saturday morning a new sketch is posted for the week. Flip the sketch, rotate it… create a card, a scrapbook page, a wall hanging, digital, paper, fabric, paint, anything your imagination comes up with! There is no right or wrong way, as long as you are using the Unscripted sketch as the inspiration for your creation! And everyone is invited to join in the fun... and post your creation on their page via inlinkz for all the world to see!

Thanks for stopping by!!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Have some time this afternoon? Please join me live at 4:00pm EST {1pm PST} in the Daylight Musings room at the Saturday Crafts Fair on Linqto! I am demonstrating there every Saturday where I'm sharing my projects, showing how-to's, sharing tips, and there's prizes, too. Today I am upcycling a tequila box into an asian themed lamp. Hope to see you there!  : ) Sb

  1. I love how the 'doodles' added so much to your stickers! Such a cheerful card!
    I really need to go through my stickers. Some are extremely old and probably not very sticky anymore...


I would love to hear your thoughts and comments...
