Friday Sketchers Challenge 52

Friday Sketchers provided a great sketch to work with and one I enjoyed using.
The card I chose to make was a Birthday card.
I chose a soft pink background paper that looks feminine and gentle. The text paper has Happy Birthday on it and contrasts well with the background and the central paper with the image on it. The central paper has elements of the colours used in the whole card. The image is Crafty Pads Just Ted, I used distressed ink to colour the paper, using felt tip colouring pen I drew around the image to define the image. I used a lilac check paper for the semi-circles as it goes well with the background paper. I placed two floral embelishments on it to add interest and to contrast well with the pink ribbon. The sentiment Happy Birthday gives the finishing touch to the card.
This was fun to make and I enjoyed using the sketch.
