CSS Blog Hop: Sketch Challenge

Welcome to another fun blog hop being hosted by members of StampTV's Center Stage Alumni. This time around, the hop is based on an Sketch Challenge. If you came from Giovana's blog, then you're right where you should be. You can also go to StampTV to see a list of all those participating.
Here is the sketch we had to work with.

The sketch was created by Melissa Cash who is also celebrating her birthday today. We decided to surprise her and design birthday cards using her sketch! We wish you a wonderful birthday Melissa and here's the birthday card I came up with:

 
 Happy Birthday Melissa!! 
I made this using the new Stamp TV Kit Falling for You.  I used Lipstick Red and Sweet Corn cardstock which  matches perfectly with Old School Pink Paislee patterned paper. The sweet bird was paper pieced and the sentiment is from Various Verses (the new One Free w/3 stamp set).

We are also giving away a set! Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (August 16th), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs who will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!
To continue to the fun, head on over to Joy's blog to see her amazing card!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
Blessings,
