Birthday Wishes

 I used a card sketch from over at Stamp TV for three of the five cards here today. I mixed Gina K. Designs Picture It & Organize It! for all three. It's a quick and easy sketch, and flat enough to mail with one stamp. I stamped the images with my Versafine black pad and embossed them in clear. Then, I colored them with my minuscule supply of Copics.
 This one is GKD Signs of Autumn and Thanks A Million; the ribbon is GKD also. I stamped the rooster in Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, and the ink really pooled up on the stamp. I thought I'd go ahead and stamp it to see what it looked like.  I decided it looked pretty cool and distressed and fit in just fine with this sort of French Provencal card.
 Same supplies as the first card. One thing I wanted to mention: GKD are so closely trimmed, that I don't have to use a stamp positioner to get three images like this stamped straight. I just stamped the frame, then the flowers, then the sentiment and then embossed them all. No fiddling around.
 I quilted the background. It's such a good way to use up little bits and pieces. This card has the same supplies as the rooster card, except I added a PTI frame and die cut.
Another view. I hope you can stop by tomorrow for tomorrow's 365 Sketchy Sunday!
