The Happiest of Birthdays


Well I survived the first day of school with the kidos!  Although, I must say I am a little sore because I feel like I walked about 5 miles, but I am still in one piece!  Those kids just warm my heart!   So, the card I have for you today is for 3 different challenges.  The first is for the color challenge over at The Play Date Cafe.   Those colors look amazing together and as soon as I saw them I knew I had just the paper for it!  The fabulous sketch is from ispy.  And the challenge over at the The Paper Players is to incorporate paper piecing…which I just love to do!  My photo came out a little more red…but the actual DP has more of the orange tones.  The clouds were drawn and cut out with scissors and embossed with my cuttlebug.  The balloon stamp is from the dollar bin at Michaels.  The sentiment is from Stampendous.

Thanks for stopping by…I just love when you do!  Have a great day!
