Happy Birthday!


Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, You look like a monkey, you smell like one too!

Our challenge Mom, Lisa celebrated a birthday this week as long as another player of ours, Gerrie Johnnic and so in honor of their birthday's our theme is BIRTHDAY!

I combined our blogger's challenge today with a few other challenges-trying to work ahead of schedule this week.  

The {Stamps} of Life is sponsoring the Lily Pad Card Challenge this week with an inspiration piece and sketch.  I chose to combine them and use both of them.

When I was creating this card, I also had the Paper Crafts Gallery Challenge in mind which is rainbow colors.  I went the traditional rainbow for this challenge.



I created this card by first stamping the borders4me in a rainbow fashion.  I love the fact that you can bend these stamps the way you wish to fit what you need.  Once I got my rainbow lined up, i stamped the little flowers from flower2doodle and then the sentiment from daisies2garden.  My flower was created using the flowers die from sizzix and some vellum paper.  I cut about 8 of the larger and smaller flowers and wrinkled them before adhering the brad through them.

Hope you will join The {Stamps} of Life over at Lily Pad Challenges using the inspiration piece/sketch and link in to blogger's challenge using a birthday theme.
