Try It Out Tuesday - Sketch and birthday card


What is it about cheerleaders that make you either love them or hate them? I adore them and this cutie, Cheerleader Julia from Anki's Sweethearts 2 Collection from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design just makes me smile! Birthday cards should make you smile so I thought these two would be a perfect combination for our Design Team Challenge this week for our sketch and challenge from our fearless leader, Suzanne Dean!

I colored this cutie with my copics and highlighted her sweet pom poms with some Smooch and Sparkly Fluff. I love this saying from Susanaments! Aren't they just the greatest?! The paper is from the Euphoria collection from BasicGrey which is my favorite paper and the buttons are from my stash. I added some Scrapper's Floss and Bella Baubles and think she's just perfect to make someone a cheerful birthday card!

Don't forget to stop over at the store blog, Follow Your Heart, and catch up on the latest news for our new release of Elisabeth Bell for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD). We're going to have a blog hop on Thursday and these new sweeties are going to be available for purchase on Friday, July 17th! I can hardly wait!

Hope everyone has a "cheerful" day!

Card Ingredients:

Julia from Anki's Sweethearts 2 for SCACD, Susanaments by SCACD, Sparkly Fluff, Ephoria paper Collection from BasicGrey, Bella Baubles, Scrapper's Floss, buttons and ribbon from stash, SU ticket punch
