Sweet Stop's 100th Sketch - Have a Sweet Birthday Mom!!

Wow, how fast this week has gone!! I am so sorry I haven't gotten anything posted all week, it was a bit crazy here with Spring Break sleepovers, spring cleaning and all day playing.  Oh, I almost forgot...I finally have a crafting/work space of my own.  No more cleaning of the kitchen table before meals and at 3:00 at night, thank you IKEA and my wonderful husband.  I still have some orgnainzing to do but it is getting there.

Today is my mom's birthday so today's card is for her. " Happy Birthday Mom, I Love You!!"
Today's sketch at The Sweet Stop is Korin's 100th sketch, Wow.. I don't know how she does it, she is awesome!!  I really hope you will play along with us this week with the theme" How Sweet" there are some great prizes- a $25 gift certificate to Sweet n'Sassy and and the latest CD From Technique Junkies Emboss or Die.
 This image worked out perfectly for the theme and it is from Mo's Digital Pencil called Birthday Fairy Lee and the sentiment is from Taylored Expressions For the Love of Cupcakes.   I fell in love with this paper from The Girl's Paperie called Vintage Whimsy.  I was very happy with the layout and distressing that I added with my distressing tool along with Distress Ink Linen however, when you get to my coloring, uugh!! I did some horrible procrastinating on ordering Copic refills and ran out of my R81 not to mention I can never seem to find the right pink combination in my collection, either to bright to coral.  My favorite is R81,83 and 85 but I wish there was a combo that has this tone but a bit lighter so if anyone has a favorite combo please let me know. I added some Crystal Stickles for some shimmer the swirl is from Sizzix and the flowers are from Wild Orchid.
Now hop on over to The Sweet Stop Blog and check out the wonderful cards that Sugar Babies have to share with you.
