Sketch for a 30th birthday

After 30 days away on holidays, I am back! I can't say I am over the moon about it- I will defenitely miss the sunny weather, but I guess there are some positive things about being home: the most important one, I can craft again! And as usual, as soon as I landed, there were already some orders pending. "I know it's short notice but would you be able to...." Well, of course! :-)

Today's card is for my youngest sister-in-law who is turning 30 (bless!) this week.
Since I was feeling a bit rusty after not crafting for so long I decided to use a sketch as inspiration: I Heart 2 stamp.
The card is also entering the following challenges:
Daring cardmakers - It's a Girl thing
Everything but the Kitchen sink - Buttons
CRAFT challenge - Hot and Spicy colours
Cute Card Thursday - Texting Crazy
Dutch Dare - Anything goes
Mami Doodles - Anything goes
Phindy's Place - Clean and Simple
Challenge up your life - Celebrations
One Stop Craft - Patterns

For this card, I used pink foam; Cuttlebug embossing folder; Labels Nine Nestabilities; Sentiment stamp by Hero Arts; orange, pink, green and fuschia cardstock; 3D foam pads; pink staples, patterned paper, orange and green buttons - all from my own stash. 

Thanks for your comments!
