IBS Sketch and Birthday Challenge

Hello, blogger friends!  Long time, no blogging, huh?  Several vacations AND a new job have been keeping me busy.  I've actually been making cards, but I have not been making deadlines for the challenges.  I've also started back into scrapbooking, in an effort to catch up with my youngest child's childhood pictures (she is 30).  So, I have been a little busy.

When I saw the latest Inspired by Stamping 2 year birthday challenge, I just had to play.  I love the Inspired by Stamping stamps and flowers and ribbons.  For this card, I used the Happy Sentiment set to stamp the greeting.  The size of the letters makes a great focal point for my card.  My paper is from the Happy Harvest fall line from Doodlebug Designs.  I also used some crochet lace from the Inspired by stamping store.  Love it!

I think this card will also qualify for the Inspired by Stamping Sketch challenge.  I used Sketch #1.  Happy birthday, Inspired by Stamping!
