Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 227

Good morning!!  It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  Want to play along?  Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of this post to enter your card. The links will close on Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time). Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC227 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I have to be honest, I was a teensy bit afraid of those diagonal stripes, but once I started playing around with some patterned paper, it all fell into place.

I inked up the birthday sentiment in Berrylicious ink and then stamped it repeatedly on the Speech Bubble Frame.  I adore that graduated look!  I added the happy in Steel Grey ink and then popped it up over a 3x4 Insert Die-namics.  I added a little banner and button in the corner too.

Be sure to see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have created this week:
