SSSC86-You're A Superstar!

So here's my card for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch today. I think I've actually been fairly true to the sketch for a change--it helps that it was a square sketch!! Instead of using patterned paper for the horizontal strip, I embossed a portion of the background cardstock and sanded it to reveal the white inner core of the paper. Both Henri and his little friend who is having her birthday party today were in yesterday's triathlon. They didn't know this in advance and were even in the same wave! So I've used my swirl embossing folder, a wheel-style sticker embellishment and a stitched wave in the background to represent the swim-bike-run event. The heart is for their friendship. Hope you enjoy the sketch and a very sweet Sunday. We're off to a birthday party!!
