Sketch Saturday #305

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  It's still lovely here, so it's looking to be a terrific weekend.  I just love it when all the trees are in bloom and the birds are singing and flocking to my feeders!  Anyway,  I am here with my DT post for this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge.  We are generously sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!  They are offering a $25 voucher for the Simon Says Stamp store!

Here is the fantastic sketch from Jen:
Here is my take on the sketch:

My card base and mats are SU Bermuda Bay and the patterned papers are from the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is Celebrate Joyfully from Tiddly Inks.  I used the digi version, but the image is also available in a clear stamp set from the Simon Says Stamp store.  I printed Emma on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added a little grass with my Copics, too.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some stitching and a few Wild Orchid Crafts Sweetheart Blossoms finished my card:
Here is a close-up of the colored image:
