12 Days of Sketches Week 1...Happy Birthday

Happy Wednesday!!!! I started out with good intentions for doing the 12 Days of Sketches sponsored by the The Greeting Farm, but alas I fall behind on one and I never catch up!

Annywhoo I was able to do the first Sketch and I used it for this Birthday card that I made for my Brother-In-Law.

I started with a Card base of Basic Black and White. I then used a layer of Basic Grey which was embossed with my CB "Happy Birthday" folder. My DP is from Ambrosia by Basic Grey, I just LOVE this paper!

I used my scallop oval punch on some Ruby Red and my oval punch on White. I stamped two presents from Stamping Up's set Sleigh Full of Toys and colored them with Green Copics and added Star Bust Stickles to the bows. I added black brads and Grey taffeta ribbon. I also used my black copic marker and added dots to the scallops and circle punches for the sentiment and I also added one of Taylor's Tiny Twinkles by Taylored Expressions.
