Happy Birthday From the Heart

For this post I have a birthday card to share with you. 
I made this using a free digi stamp from The Craft's Meow.
They are having a Birthday Bash from 3/17 - 3/21 in honor of their 1st birthday!
They issued a sketch challenge.

Here's the sketch

Here's my take on it

(you can click on the picture to see it larger)

The sentiment is the free digi from The Craft's Meow.
It reads "Happy Birthday from the Heart Because that is where all great wishes start."

So I used a pink cardstock for the base.
Cut a rectangle out of some green with pink tiny flower DCWV paper and then used my new Fiskars Combo Border Corner Punch. I like the look it gives.
I cut the pink heart out from my computer at the same time I did the digi sentiment.
I cut a silver tag from DCWV paper.
added some pearl flourishes
inked the edges of everything
and also drew over some parts of the sentiment with a pink marker.

That's all folks!

Hope you enjoyed your time here. Come back soon. : )
