Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge

OCC has challenges each week.  I know I didn't follow it exactly but I've had these stamps from Paper Trey Ink for a long time and been dying to ink them up.  I needed a birthday card for my sister-in-law so thought this would be perfect. 
I used a Cuttlebug folder on the top.  The bottom is a Martha Stewart punch with some ribbon in the middle.  Ink is Certainly Celery.  There are a couple pearls on the Happy Birthday die cut too.  I ended up having to sponge the greeting, something got on it (not ink) and I didn't want to redo it.  Gotta love sponging to cover up things like that!  It's really quite simple but I like it.  It reminds me of spring and since we were forecast to have a nasty storm these past 3 days and possible power outage, I need spring!  Oh, the power outage and storm never did hit.  Thank you California for not sending your worst!  LOL  I think you kept most of the moisture.  I do hope you get a break now.

This is so pretty - light and spring-like. I love the way you interpreted the OCC sketch - very nice twist using the dry embossing across the top. So happy you could join in the fun with us this week at the OCC.
