Birthday Wishes

I created this birthday card using this adorable Kenny K image called Troublemaker. The sketch that I used is from this week's challenge at A Spoonfull Of Sugar. The base of my card is berry blush backed in white and then backed again in spring breeze. I then cut two pieces of spring breeze, backed them both in white and added them to the card. I then cut a strip of white cardstock and punched the bottom edge using a doily lace border punch and added a pink and white gingham ribbon to the top of the strip of white. I added that on top of the two pieces of green. I then cut a square out of berry blush, backed it in white, added the sentiment to the bottom corner and then added it on top of the white strip. I colored the image using prisma and crayola colored pencils. I cut the image out in an oval, backed it in berry blush and then backed it again in white and cut around the white using scalloped scissors. I then cut a flower out of berry blush using the cricut cartridge Mother's Day Bouquet. I also cut out a different flower from white using the same cartridge. I added three pearls to the upper corner of the berry blush square and one to the center of the flower.
