Happy Birthday!

Saturday greetings! Boy oh boy is it cold or what? How many days till spring ~ hee! I'm taking advantage of the cold as an excuse to stay in, stay warm and get inky. I'm playing along with The Card Concept today, they're celebrating their fist anniversary. And I couldn't wait to use this pretty sketch by Amy for Freshly Made Sketches. Hope you like it!



I think my card falls into the clean and layered category at TCC. I focused on the many shades of pink, flowers and stripes from the inspiration photo. I used my new RC circle garland to mimic the beads coming from the box. The 4mm & 6mm Marshmallow & 4mm & 6mm Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh are sprinkled about to represent the babies breath. My little cluster of roses and sentiment are DeNami Design stamps. My rose matches the darker pink garland, but it's sure not photographing that way!


I would like to give a big warm welcome to my newest followers! 
Thanks for joining me in this blogging journey of mine. 
Have a great weekend ~Lisa

Awww - it's just darling! And I would have to agree with you. Cold days are the best because there are no real reasons to step foot outside the crafting room, right?!

Cold is the perfect excuse to use to stay inside and get crafty! And I just love this pretty card. The papers are so lovely and the flower cluster is sweet. So nice to see you playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

Lisa, this is so pretty! I love the design and the colors!

Cold days are perfect for crafting and I miss being able to do that. These have been the most perfect crafting days however with a little one home due to delays and still having to get out in it...no crafting is happening and my blog is still very quiet! So, that just means you have to make twice as many to make up for me! :-) I would rather be crafting making pretties...you sure have!

Lisa, this is just a darling birthday card! So feminine and pretty...love all the pinks! Hope you are staying warm where you are...it is below freezing here, too, but unfortunately the kids still have all their usual running around to do (so I'm in the car with the heat cranked up!)
