Stamping 411 Sketch Challege 149

I have a bunch of birthday cards that I need to mail out for the month of May. So this weekend I worked on these so they are ready when I need to mail them. The stamping 411 sketch for this weeks challenge worked perfectly for my cards.

Here's the sketch and my card.

As a demonstrator we are allowed to preorder out of the new catalog a month before the catalog is released. I ordered the new happy birthday build a wheel stamps that fit into the jumbo handle out of the Summer Mini Catalog that began yesterday and runs until August 31. I didn't have anything that I needed to make to allow me a chance to use these stamps until now. I ordered the candles and words that say "happy birthday to you." I thought I was going to be able to use both but with the size strip that I used, you couldn't tell what the words were. So, I stuck with the candles in the background. I will be featuring the new build a wheel stamps in my upcoming workshop May 29th.

To make this card, I ran the pink paper through the Big Shot using the dot texture backgrounds #1 plate. The stamps are the birthday cake from Fun & Fast Notes and "make a wish" from A Little Birthday Cheer set. I used the markers to color the cake in. Remember: You can place an order on my site 24/7.

This turned out to be a very simple sketch to make a lot of the same cards.
