Less Is More "Pick a Square" Challenge

Hello, friends!  Just stopping by today with a last minute card I made for the current challenge at Less Is More (Week 17 Recipe) to make a card using just one square from the following sketch:

I decided to focus on the center square of the design above.  I made a very simple birthday card using a Studio G cupcake cling stamp and a Happy Birthday sentiment from Hero Arts.  I colored the image with colored pencils and added red Stickles to the cherry for some sparkle.

Here is a close-up of the sparkly cherry...

On a personal note, I have to say I will be SO glad when the next three weeks are over...we will finish up with an extremely busy school, work, and sports season all at once!  (C'mon June 17th!!)  I think I have permanent dark circles under my eyes from pulling way too many late nights followed by early mornings!!  (There are days I think I could fall asleep sitting at a red light on my ride home from work!)  In the meantime, I am sorry I do not have the free time to visit your blogs and leave some love...I miss you all and look forward to summer vacation so I can get back into it again! 

Thanks for stopping by...and thanks for taking the time to comment.  I do appreciate it!
