Everthin's up to date in Kansas City...they've gone about as fur as they can go...

If you're here for the Verve Diva Inspirations Hop, 
you can see my post HERE

Happy Tuesday, y'all!! It's time for another Skipping Stones Design sketch! We are welcoming Chan Vuong as our November Sketch Artist, and I'm excited to play with all her awesome sketches! Here's Sketch 100!!

I'm so excited...this month we are partnering with Creative Impressions (who totally spoiled us rotten!) to bring you some fabulous cards with their gorgeous ribbons and embellishments! Here's my card:

I used Rustic Tiles (which is on sale this month for $12.49!) to create my own patterned paper, and sponged the edges with darker pink. I gathered some black dotted ribbon from Creative Impressions and made them into three little flowers with button centers. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Pumpkin Seed Sentiments and was stamped on a die cut scrap from my stash. Here's a closer look:

The ribbon flowers looked like they were floating aimlessly around my card, so I glued some white crochet thread down and tied a little bow to make them into balloons. The three edges got some glitter treatment with Scor-Tape...have I mentioned I love this black Martha Stewart glitter?

Thanks for stopping by! Please check out all the gorgeousness from my fellow designers:
