Happy Birthday Winnie & Walter!!

Today is the last day to help Winnie & Walter celebrate their 1 year Birthday. There have been some amazing challenges all month long! I wanted to try to do all of them but I think I managed five. Today I have a take on Lea's Mood Board challenge

I used the Scarf colors and the gold as my inspiration. 

I Stamped and heat embossed the Rose & leaves from the The Big, the Bold and Extras set with Gold onto some watercolor paper. And then I colored them in with Distress Inks. Once they were dry I cut them out. For my card base I used a piece of SU's Rich Razzleberry and then a layer of Whisper White that was embossed with the Stripes folder. I followed the Sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week and added some Banners, in Razzleberry, Melon Mambo and a scrap of Gold Striped DSP I found in my stash.

I die cut a Stitched circle from the Stitched Stax from MFT. I don't have the Winnie & Walter Happy die yet... (On my list) so I used the Mama Elephant one along with the Birthday stamp from the Happy Everything set. I die cut the Happy from some Gold Foil card stock and then 3 more times from some additional white and I stacked them for dimension. The Birthday is stamped in Razzleberry onto a banner from the SU Bitty Banners die set. 

Since it's a Birthday Celebration I thought a Birthday card was in Order!!! Be sure to heave over to Winnie & Walter and check out the celebration. The Freshly Made Sketches Challenge is open until Monday @ 12pm PST.
