Ask and ye' shall receive.  My brother in law is staying with us for a few days and he said that he had to get his wife a birthday card.  No need to buy one, I can whip one up in no time!  Plus I wanted to make a card for Splitcoast's weekly sketch challenge.

The sketch this week is a great one, just perfect for CAS cards.  You can find this week's sketch here if you'd like to play along.  My card was real quick and easy to make, I simply stamped my image and colored it using my SU markers.

I used my white gel pen for the center of the flowers and I stamped and cut out one additional flower for the exclamation point in my sentiment.

I didn't have any pink ribbon, so the pink ribbon on my card was colored using my SU markers.  My green ribbon was a piece of scrap that I had left over.

Thanks for dropping by!
