Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday to You!

Hi Everyone,

This is my second post for!

I got the Amazing Birthday stamp set a few weeks ago and it is quickly becoming one of my favourites.  Tonight was the first night that I inked it up but I'm in love with it.  It is so multi dimensional!

I was inspired by this week's sketch over at Create with Connie and Mary and knew I had to play along.  I love playing along with those ladies - they are a super talented bunch!


Here is my card:

Besides the Amazing Birthday stamp set, I wanted to showcase the new Painted Blooms DSP from Stampin' Up!'s latest Occasions Catalogue.  The colours in this new DSP are just gorgeous - don't you think?
