Sunday Stamps Sketch-Wishing you a Happy Birthday

The toughest thing about making this card was waiting for my Arteza Real Brush Markers to be delivered and making a Hobby Lobby run for Canson Smooth Bristol paper.  Once the supplies were all collected, I stamped a sheet of blooms from Verve's Beautiful Kindness and started coloring.  There's a learning curve, but I love them.  I die cut the three best ones, scattered them on white card stock and die cut with a MFT stitched square die.  I couldn't resist using the other part of a flower when die cutting the banner!  The sentiment is from Verve's Poppy Birthday.

Thanks, Sunday Stamps, for the great sketch!

Thanks so much for taking a peek.....and if you are interested in the Arteza markers, they are on sale now, and I found a coupon code for an additional twenty percent off.  Also, shipping was free, and they arrived in two days!  And one more bit of info:  Some of the negatives about the markers were that they lacked names and colors on the pens.  Mine are all numbered, labeled, and have a colored end that is pretty close to the ink color!

Have a blessed July Fourth,
