Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me-ee, happy birthday to me!

He he, had you guessed? Today is my birthday. No presents yet though, I'm getting a Silhouette Cameo but not for a few more weeks. I'm hoping for an array of handmade cards later though as I'm teaching a class today and going out for dinner with friends tonight so a lovely weekend planned.

Anyway, on to this week's Sketch Saturday card. We have another amazing Sketch to work with this week:

and I went white-on-white with a wedding card. I never seem to make white-on-white look anything special but I think I did an ok job with this one. The image is by Bugaboo and is called 'Wedding Glasses'. I've used the Martha Stewart punch around the page punches to create the pretty border, embossed some white paper, added a few white embellishmets, gems and glitter, stamped the word 'love' with an old Stampin Up set and I've pleased with the result. I also added shimmer spritz all over the card for some additional sparkle which doesn't show up well on the photo, but it is lovely.

We are giving money as a wedding present so I've put it in a little shimmery envelope and stamped 'a little something for you' on it to make it look pretty - I don't just do money in cards, it has to be pretty in some way!

This week's sponsor is Bugaboo who have a huge amount of fantastic digi stamps (if I'm ever looking for something particular you can almost guarantee that Bugaboo will have something suitable!) and they are offering a brilliant prize too so make sure you play along with this week's sketch to be in with a chance of winning.

Happy scrapping and may your day be filled with cupcakes xx
