absc27 - Birthday Tulip

Hi,  Have you all had a good week.  It's been a busy one here.  We've had some HOT weather and even a little rain one day.  That was nice after the scorching temps from earlier in the week.  It's time now though for the current Annabelle Sketch Challenge so let's see what we have for you this week.
Our sketch comes from DT member Teresa.  It's a CAS sketch (Clean and Simple) and so easy to work with.  I decided however to rotate the sketch for my card so my sketch looks like this:
Here is my card. 
I wanted to use the fun Tulip image in the just released stamp set, Branch Out and that required flipping the sketch.  This allowed me to also use the great vertical birthday sentiment in the set.

Stamps:  Branch Out
Ink: Regal Rose, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Basick Black (SU)
Card stock: Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Regal Rose, Whisper White (SU)
Designer Paper: Basic Grey, Lemonade
Other: Blossom Sprinkles-Annabelle,
Scallop Punch-SU, Polka Dot ribbon, JoAnn Essentials, Paper piercing tool.

Be sure to stop by all the DTmembers blogs and leave them some comment lovin.
Andrea would LOVE it if you stopped by the store and purchased one of the new stamps sets.  They are really great to work with so hop on by and check them out.

Don't forget this is PRIZE week for participating in the sketch challenge.  One lucky person will win the Brown Petals kit shown here: You have 2 weeks to create a card with the sketch (don't forget to use some "Bling" on your card) and link back to it on the Annabelle Blog.

Have a wonderful weekend.
