This week's Sketch
 Here is what I created this week for the challenge:

My card today is an A2 sized card. I used some royal blue CS from Colorbok for my card base. All the patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye's "On the Bright Side" paper line.  For my main layer, I used my "stub" corner chomper on each corner and inked all my edges using some tea dye distress ink. I used my scallop punch from Martha Stewart for the edge along the middle strip and adhered that to some of the patterned paper. My sentiment, "Happy Birthday" is from PTI's Handwritten Notes stamp set. This set has been a favorite of mine for years. My cute cake is a digital image from Bugaboo! I colored it in using my copics R02, R29, Yr02, Y15, Y18, Y21, B32, B41 and 100. I also used my colorless blender to add some dots to my icing for some texture. My cake image is popped up on some foam tape for dimension. The stars were punched out using my old Creative Memories star punch in the 1/4" and 1/2" sizes and are also popped up for dimension. To finish the outside of the card, I added a few enamel dots to the corner. I felt like it needed a little something extra. My card's inside sentiment, "Everyone knows Birthday calories don't count" is from Stampendous.
Well that is my card and I sure hope you liked it! I really liked how this turned out.
