Happy Birthday Sketch for PPA290



It's my sketch that the Pals Paper Arts Challenge is based on this week! Even though I submitted this sketch, I didn't immediately know what I was going to do. And, I couldn't seem to place that circle in the same exact spot as the sketch, even though I tried twice! That just proves that the sketch is a starting point and may lead to other ways of placing your elements!


I wanted to make the vertical line shiny like the rest of the card (shimmery card stock and embossing powder), so I used 3 strands of Silver Metallic Thread and knotted them under the square element. My sentiment and those stars are inked in VersaMark and heat embossed with Black and White Embossing powder. The "v" design on the Shine On Specialty Designer Series paper also shines.

Thank you for stopping by this week. I hope you are inspired and that you will join us at Pals Paper Arts and create a card using my sketch!
