Happy Birthday

Hello Peeps!

Hope everyone's week is off to a great start!  Mine has been lacking in sleep, but I guess that is what happens when you convert a crib to a bed, effectively letting your child out of 'prison.'   Now, if the little bug wakes up at unthinkable early hours, he figures it is time to get up instead of falling back asleep.  I guess we have a little teaching to do or we'll have to start going to bed earlier ourselves.

We have an upcoming birthday for a friend's two year old daughter, so here is the card I made for her.   It didn't turn out how I envisioned, but I can live with it.  I am happy to say that for once, all the papers and card were scraps!  Hurray for using up scraps!  This one looks better IRL, as the camera deepened the orange cardstock a bit.


Stamps - Sugar Nellie (Cute and Cuddly - I left out the other little critters) coloured with Prisma pencils and sentiment from Stampin' Up Look Who's Turning set
Papers - all from my stash - sorry I don't remember who they are by
Dies/Punches - Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry doily and Martha Stewart edge punch
Other - lace from Kaiser, brads and ribbon from my stash, glossy accents on the balloon.

This card was inspired by the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Spots and/or stripes (second entry)
One Stop Craft Challenge - On the spot and ribbon
Winter Wonderland - birthday
Sketch Saturday - for the sketch
Totally Papercrafts - Spots and stripes (also my second entry - I couldn't find anywhere that said if this was allowed, so if multiple entries are not permitted, please remove this one :)

Thanks for stopping in and enjoy the rest of your week!
