Forever Friends

Hi and welcome to my third post as GD for Sketch Saturday.
Here is my interpretation of this week's sketch.

This is the sketch for this week for you to use.
I was influenced by the picture over at Fusion for my colour choice and slightly tweeked Cathy's sketch with my card. 
I recently went looking for some Egyptian cotton sheets with my friend Di and while in the shop I bought a couple of stamps, including this little Forever Friends bear as part of the DoCrafts 'Classic Decadence' set. The image reflects the cake in their pic plus ATCAS have the cue word CAKE!
I went with a Sizzix chevron EF for the side panel and for a little celebratory twist I used some gold card hi lights that I embossed with a CC hessian EF, with hindsight perhaps I should have added an extra candle as it is Fusion's 2nd year celebration!
 The sentiment has been in my stash unloved for what must be over two years, it came free with other images by Polka Doodles with Simply Cards and Papercraft and I thought it fit the bill here. After a little bit of stamping and masking to split the sentiment up as it was rather too square in it's original form, I then used my new MFT blueprints banner die. I stamped the bear on a MFT pierced rectangle then coloured with Copics. The smaller pink and yellow banners were stamped with a STAMPlorations chevron stamp then fussy cut and mounted under the raised side panel.

This week we are sponsored by 
Bunny Zoe's Crafts

Please check out the DT's inspiration then why not join in.

I'd like to join in over at:-

I took inspiration from the cupcakes, yellow chevron runner, white table cloth and the colours of the flowers.


  1. Beautiful card Julie, love the FF stamp - very cute and who doesn't love cake xx

  2. LOVE this card Jules. It has a little of everything ... a sweet image coloured to perfection, and the beautiful shine from the gold, and lots and lots of texture from your embossed elements. Awesome!! xx

  3. I love the soft colors and textures you used for this card, Julie! The gold paper is fabulous, too - and best of all, it chuckled reading you were shopping for sheets and came home with stamps! You're my kind of girl!! Hugs, Cathy

  8. I came in the front door (lovely floral DT card for ATSM!) and have been having a nose around, Jules, since I've been remiss in my visits and, oh, my, you have been creating so many wonderful works of art! I had to stop on this one as it really sang to me! I'm pinning it because I just love how you interpreted the sketch!! Hugs, Darnell
