Blogger's Challenge #34

Blogger's Challenge 34 -- yep it is Friday again! Today's challenge was to use the layout on page 42 of the Spring-Summer Stampin Up catalog -- the Happy Birthday card. I decided to use a stamp set I bought a few weeks ago but have not used yet. It is called Birthday Wish and it is by Inkadinkado stamp set. Hope you like it. I am off to the doctor--have some horrible respiratory infection and need meds. So I am keeping this brief and to the point, lol.

Papers: Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue, Wild Wasabi card stock, Bali Breeze dp (Pumpkin Pie)
Ink: Brilliant Blue, Wild Wasabi and Pumpkin Pie
Other: Paper Piercer, hand held circle punch, scallop circle punch, ribbon, and mini faux brads.

Don't forget to check out the other cards done by the rest of the group. The link in on my sidbar under the logo Bloggers Challenge. I will be back after the doctor to share more samples of Monday's Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #4.
