Here is the sketch that was created by Liz Goldhawk:

I just love this Fresh Vintage stamp set and Everyday Enchantment DSP that you will be able to get for free during Sale-a-Bration!

The card base is Pool Party card stock cut at 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” and scored at 4-1/4”. A piece of Everyday Enchantment DSP was cut at 2-3/4” x 4-1/4” and was adhered onto the bottom of the card front. A scrap of Whisper White that was at least ½” x 4-1/4” was run through the Big Shot on the Tasteful Trim die to cut out the ric-rac. This was adhered over the top edge of the DSP.

Next a piece of Whisper White card stock was cut at 2-1/2” x 2-1/2”. The flower image from Fresh Vintage was colored in with Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, and Calypso Coral markers. Then I breathed on the stamp to re-moisten the ink and stamped the image onto the card stock. This was adhered onto a 2-5/8” x 2-5/8” piece of Calypso Coral card stock before being adhered onto the card front.

The greeting from Happiest Birthday Wishes was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock in Pool Party ink. The image was cut out with paper snips just around the largest circle line. The Scallop Circle punch was used on a scrap of Pool Party card stock. The greeting was adhered onto the scalloped circle and was adhered onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This card was so quick and easy to put together! Thanks for the great sketch Liz!
