Sweet Happy Birthday

Happy Sweet Wednesday to you! And welcome back for another challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. How fabulous, don't you think?!!

Our sponsor this week is the one and only Bugaboo Stamps. I love their images. I don't even dare count how many of them I have...all I know is it's A LOT!!! Our winner will receive 7 digi images of their choice!! Totally fabulous! Only problem is narrowing down the list to seven!!

 Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug
 

Here's my card, using the darling Picnic Ant - Apple. Such a cutie, even for an ant!! I'm not much of a flower arranger, so the embellies along the bottom intimidated me at first. I decided to change 'em up to stars and dots for something different. I only wish I hadn't made this into a standard A2 card, wish I had chopped a little off the bottom. Oh well, maybe next time. Please join us for a fun and fabulous challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Linda, your card is so stickin cute!! It looks fine as an A card. I was a little intimidated by all the embellies too at first. But, I really like how this sketch turns out. I love the stars. I would have never thought of that. It is so perfect. Gorgeous job, as always. Have a great week.
Hugs, Nancy
