Get Sketchy Trash to Treasure Challenge....{Sweet and Sassy 6!}

Happy December 29th!  Today my baby turns SIX!  I can't believe it! 

Here she is.....six, sweet and sassy all wrapped up in a cute little package :)  And what better way to celebrate then a custom card just for the birthday girl?  I was inspired by the gals at Get Sketchy to make trash into treasure!  I chose a pants pocket flap I salvaged off a pair of my little girls' capris from last summer. 

See it?  It's up top complete with some machine stitching to my card and a ribbon bow laced through the button hole.  Lots of cute DP from KI  Memories go great with the print on the piece of fabric.

The three larger flowers are stickers from the same KI line.  I created some depth with foam squares behind a few of the pieces.  Lots of punches on this card too!  The orange bling is courtesy of clear mini craft gems and a layer of orange alcohol ink.

Pretty fun!  And so my little girl right now! 
Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope your day is also SWEET and SASSY!
