A Tuesday Morning Happy Birthday

This week's Tuesday Morning Sketch was perfect for Close To My Heart's new Honeycomb stamp set.   I couldn't wait to get home and use this set for this sketch!   I combined the sketch with this week's Color Throwdown.

I used the ink colors of Smoothie, Sunset and Blush for my honeycombs.  The outline is stamped in Desert Sand.  And what do you know - there is that burlap ribbon!  BTW, I've used so much burlap lately that I'm getting low again so will be ordering more!  I wrapped some Smoothie Bakers Twine around the burlap and tied a little bow.  The sentiment is from my new Joyful Birthday stamp and also stamped in Desert Sand.
