Yay! It's Your Birthday!

Hello!  Well, after two snow days, it's back to work today!  But, we go in an hour late and since I usually work 1/2 days that makes my morning nice & short!

Yesterday, I took some time and added new stamps for sale in my Stamps for Sale tab above!  To see what I have available, be sure to click here or click on the tab at the top of my blog!

Papertrey Ink is celebrating their 7th Birthday this month and they are hosting some challenges.  The first one is a sketch & color challenge.

I felt very inspired by the sketch and the colors that I chose.  This is what I came up with:

Yay! Bday

Can you see why the colors inspired me?  They are some of my favorites!  The "challenge" to me was adding the Scarlet Jewel in to the mix and so I stamped the sentiment and some of the smaller dots in that color.  I love how they all worked together!

To create the stripes, I masked off the sides using post-it notes.  I may have to make a few more of these to have on hand!  

Here's the colors & sketch my card is based on:

In the midst of all the many cards, Jen, yours caught my eye. Fabulous twist on the sketch and just so wonderfully festive. I agree with Amy, make more.
