SSD Sketch Challenge #91

Hi all-

Today, I am playing along with the Skipping Stones Designs Sketch Challenge #91 by the fabulous and talented Teri Anderson.  (Click the link for all the deets and to play along.) Here is the sketch:

And here is my take:

I cut three circles from gray, orange and hot pink cardstock and stamped the Moroccan tile print from Timeless Textures onto the cardstock with Verafine embossing ink.  I sprinkled the stamped circles with white embossing powder and heated with my heat gun to bring out the stamped image.  I drew a frame around the edge of the white cardstock panel with a fine tip black pen- leaving a space for the Happy Birthday sentiment (from Birthday Donuts).  I arranged the circles on the cardstock trimmed off the excess, mounted to black cardstock and adhered the finished card front to a white card base.

Hope you find some inspiration in my take on Teri's sketch. Thanks for stopping by!
