Birthday Girl

Paper Craft Planet has brought back our weekly sketch challenge!  Each week, a different Paper Craft Planet Super Nova will share a new sketch in our sketch challenge group here.  This week's sketch is courtesy of Lisa.

I made fun birthday card using the Scooter Chloe set from Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps.  Since Chloe's a stamp from one of their first releases, this card also fits the current "throwback" challenge on the Sparkle Creations blog.  I colored the image with Copic markers, then added a little bit of sparkle with some Smooch paint along the scooter's trim and with some Spica pen on the hearts.  After cutting out the colored image, I attached it to a circle background with a gray "road" and blue "sky."

I used a pair of patterned papers from a Simple Stories paper pad for the panels on the card.  A striped one covers most of the cardfront and a strip of number patterned paper runs across it.  The edges of the striped paper are machine stitched for a finished look.  For the sentiment, I stamped the "birthday girl" sentiment from the Lil' Inker Designs Sentiment Flag Additions stamp set on a strip of yellow cardstock and added it to the card with some foam tape.

To join in the PCP challenge, just make a card using this week's sketch and upload it to the PCP gallery using the keyword sk071312.  We can't wait to see what you create!
