Belated Birthday Wishes

Happy Thursday!  I like working with sketches, and making something pretty and beautiful.  And, as long as I'm not interupted.  So, I was given that creative freedom last night.  My husband plays ice hockey a few nights a week, so those are my 'golden' crafting times.  
The talented ladies over @ Creative Sketches, has a new sketch for us to work with this week.  I encourage you to play along with us.  

Here is the sketch:

Here is my interputation of this sketch:

My first thought when I saw the sketch, was to make flowers and line them up.  But, that seems too obvious.  So, I quit browsing through my craft room and changed my focus.  And the perfect pennant punch came to mind.  Then, I needed a color(s) to get this card going.  While eating dinner, I had a blue and vanilla color combo running through my mind.  So, that was my platform to start.  I have been on a tangent to use my scraps.  (oh my, if you only knew the extensive collection.)  So, I knew I wanted 'blue' and that was my start.  I used a variation of 'green' and 'pink' based on the colored polka dots in the pattern paper.  
Most of the products used, are from Stampin' Up!, except the colored polka dot pattern paper, the pink plaid pattern paper, the stamped 'blue' pattern paper, and the buttons.
Thank you for looking, and I hope your Thursday is fantastic!
