Kitchen Sink Monday - Sweet Birthday Wishes

Happy Kitchen Sink Monday, I hope you had a great weekend! I used MJ's Sketch 85 for my inspiration, rotating the sketch, and adding the sentiment Sweet Birthday Wishes in place of the brads. All images are from Kitchen Sink Stamps Multi Step Berries.

To create the focal image, I stamped as follows: Stem Step 2 in Old Olive, Step 1 Old Olive stamped off; Leaves - Step 3 Old Olive, Step 2 Old Olive, Step 1 Old Olive stamped off; Berries - Step 4 Riding Hood Red, Step 3 Riding Hood Red, Step 2 Riding Hood Red stamped off, Step 1 Riding Hood Red stamped off. I stamped the third berry on scratch paper, added the stems (Step 3 Old Olive, Step 2 Old Olive, Step 3 Old Olive stamped off), cut it out then popped it up on a dimensional. The edges of the panel are sponged in Old Olive, then layered on a Black panel.

The Olive panel behind my image was run through the Big Shot using the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder. TIP - remember to spritz your card stock lightly with water for a deeper embossed image. After embossing, I used the CuttleBug Highlights to add color to the embossing, and sponged the edges.
