Birthday Brew... and a treat for you!

It's time for a new I {heart}sketches challenge at From The Heart Stamps :)

Here's the sketch, and an optional inspirational photo too, should you wish to use it as well as the sketch and/or twist, which, this time, is to make a Birthday Card...


Join in the challenge, and EVERYONE who plays will receive a $1 discount code for the store, and if you are the challenge winner, you will receive a $5 discount code to the store! :)
Remember though, you must use an image by From The Heart Stamps to be eligible, and please include a pic of the sketch in your blog post too.

Here's my card, the one my son gave his dad yesterday for his birthday...


I've used the image Birthday Brew, this was the first image I ever bought from From The Heart.
Then I discovered the Birdbrains, Pigwits, Faithful Friends and other glorious images too :)
You get 4 free sentiments with Birthday Brew, 2 of which i've used on this card.
I've used papers from Bella Gypsy 'The Last Key' (star design), and 2 Echo Park papers, the spotty piece is from All I want for Christmas, and the zig-zag from Splash!.
I've used my tiny bubbles embossing folder, and Die-namics 'By the Letter' dies for 'DAD'.

  2. I'd just love to win a voucher! I also bought the birthday brew as one of my original (if not THE original) purchases from FTHS. I now have quite the collection but haven't been able to contribute to the challenges recently but, in the immortal words of our beloved Arnie....."I'm back"!!! So thanks for the inspiration, I'll begin my make right now xxxx
