Freshly Made Sketches #396

Clean Team designer Linda Callahan has given us a fabulous sketch to work with this week!

This card is miles away from where I started the design, but once I had the idea to stitch a frame I couldn't let it go. This MFT Happy Llamadays llama image fit the rustic feel of my stitching. A little selective stamping allowed me to transform it from a Christmas holiday stamp to a birthday image.

The sentiment is masked to remove the "s", heat embossed and the tassel stitches added before it is adhered to the card base.

The Clean Team has terrific ideas this week - check them out and join us over at Freshly Made Sketches!

I'm linking this card to Seize the Birthday! in the Anything Goes category.

Thanks for stopping by,
