This is for the Try a New Technique challenge - Pencil Me In - a method that makes your image look sketched rather than stamped. I selected a stamp had a "sketchy" look. I stamped it lightly in Going Grey (stamped off once) and it barely showed on the cardstock. I stamped the HB sentiment in Going Grey (no stamp off) on the card base. Using a number 2 pencil, I sketched over the lines with a little more free hand. I sketched all of the cake and only the stars on the HB above it. Then I colored in the cake with pastels. Wink of Stella is on the flame & lines around it. Fun challenge! I will do this one again! Thanks for looking!

Incredible, that's what your penciled image and hand-made sentiment is. I love this! OMGoodness, it's so sweet with your HP going from side to side and your precious image. the frosting on the cake is the bottom border with your darling twine. Have I made myself clear here? I love this card.
