Happy Birthday card

Hi all! I'm back after a mini vacation ... a few days to do a bit of sightseeing, do some back to school shopping and most importantly, pick up my daughter from a six-week cadet camp. It was so good to see her again and to have her home with us! I purchased a few goodies on my little trip and I used them to help create my card for this month's Cardabilities August sketch.

Here's the sketch:

Here's my card based on the sketch............
I started off with yellow cardstock for the base and then used papers from a 6X6 paper pad from My Mind's Eye called Indie Chic. I used my new stencil from The Crafter's Workshop called Mini Love Post and inked it up with Tim Holtz distress stains in Vintage Paper and Tarnished Brass. I also inked a music note stamp in those same stains and randomly stamped .I used baby wipe that had the Vintage Photo stain on it  and smudged it over the card edges . A Prima flower , some dark brown hemp , a wooden clock (inked with distress stain) from Michaels, a few Silhouette rhinestones and a sentiment from Verve stamps and my card is complete!
I just love how these sketches help my cards come together so quickly... really makes cardmaking fun again!!
Thanks for stopping by today... have a wonderful ,crafty day!!!
