TSG 157 Happy Birthday! Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone!  It has been such a hectic and long week at work.  I am so glad it is the weekend, and to have Monday off as well. WooHoo!  I had a lot of fun making this new card for the There She Goes Weekly Challenge.  It also happens to be Jessica's (Owner of TSG) birthday week, so I decided to send a little birthday love her way.  The challenge this week was to make a card based on the sketch shown below.

I made the card using a brown cardstock base from American Crafts.  This, BTW, is my favorite plain cardstock because of the solid color core.  I just prefer not to have the white core showing when I cut my cardstock up.  Not to mention that it is just a good quality cardstock overall.  I used Echo Parks This & That Graceful by Lori Whitlock paper line for my patterned paper.  LOVE this line of paper!  The stamped image and sentiments used were Stampendous Clear Stamps BIRTHDAY BRACKETS ssc132 collection. The twine is The Twinery twine in Buttercream Light Yellow from RibbonCarousel

I once again used Tim Holtz Distress Markers to watercolor the image.  I love these markers, and just can't use them enough lately.  I haven't invested in alcohol based markers yet, but I am planning on doing so soon.  I added a little sparkle to the flames with Stickles in Yellow.

The inside is finished using all of the same products mentioned above.

I hope all of you enjoy this card and have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  Happy Birthday Jessica!
