TESC98 - Birthdays are the best

It's time again for another Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. This week's challenge TESC98 was fabulous for buttons, so I added a lot of my stash buttons to create this girlie birthday card. It's been a fun week for me to get a chance to do lots of stamping and be able to share it with you all. I really need to catch up on cardmaking, especially birthday cards. It seems like I am always running around trying to make them at the last minute. Sometimes I even have to *gasp* buy one. LOL! So of course, I knew that this week's TESC card would be a birthday one. I have been hoarding away on my patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket. I really love this sweet Girl Friday line and I finally had the strength to cut into it. LOL! I used the PTI Blooming Button bits set for the main image and sentiment. I added some various PTI buttons for the flowers and embellishment around the sentiment. This card was fun and fast to make. My favorite combo!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you all get a chance to play along with us. Be sure to stop by and visit the rest of the Sketch Crew to see what they have created:
