Enjoy your summer birthday

This card is based on the sketch for Freshly made sketches 348:

I love this kind of sketch which is so versatile - very similar to a card I made much earlier that you can see here where I used one large stamped image cut into four squares. So I'm also entering this for Little red wagon 457: sketchy time, where we are asked to show a favourite sketch.

The papers are from my offcuts box and the four squares were originally inches made for swaps (years ago, when a group used to exchange, but keep back one for ourselves).

Top left square contains a sun charm that was made golden with alcohol ink. Top right square shows a Delicious Doodles digital image coloured with alcohol pens. Bottom left square shows a Magenta inchie stamp coloured with alcohol pens with some faux stitching. Bottom right is an unknown butterfly picture. All of these were mounted on to offcuts of mirror card. The 'Enjoy your summer birthday' was generated with my Dymo letratag with clear tape.
