Happy 4th Birthday

Welcome to a very hot Summer's day in Melbourne - 36 degrees Celsius! We got our doggie walk in nice and early and are now enjoying an afternoon in aircon.The forecast is for a dry cool change tonight - which will be a change from the usual stormy versions we get - just in time for sleep hopefully :-) So strange to think that many in the Northern Hemisphere are covered with snow while we are positively melting!!

And it is time for another sketch from The Paper Craft Crew. The team have a very varied and awesome collection of cards to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment and pop over to see them :-)

So here is the sketch:

And here is my card - for my oldest Niece  :-)

Yes, I have resisted the urge to do a "Frozen" card ;-) and instead went with pinks and silver sparkle for her 4th Birthday card! Hopefully she will like it! It still has stars and sparkle which hopefully will appeal to her  as she loves anything Princess related :-)
For the background I first stamped with both Gorgeous Grunge and Work of Art before punching some silver and and red Glimmer Paper and adding some of the stars to the background.

Card stock: Strawberry Slush, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Silver Glimmer, Red Glimmer
Inks: Strawberry Slush, Pink Pirouette, 
Stamps: Gorgeous Grunge, Work of Art, Starburst Sayings
Accessories: Big Shot, Starburst Framelits, Circle Framelits, Timeless Type Alphabet Sizzlits (Retired), Itty Bitty Banner Framelits, Star Border Punch, Silver Twine

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a moment to check out all the great inspiration the Team at The Paper Craft Crew and I look forward to seeing what you create with this sketch!

Happy stamping until next time,
