Hurray, Happy Birthday!

Hurray for me - I got another birthday card made this weekend.  I'm so excited about it.  Not just because I have another card finished, but also because I can enter this one into some fun challenges that I don't always get the opportunity to play along in (despite how much I wish I always could).  So needless to say, I'm happy, happy, happy!
I took out some patterned papers from my stash.  I've been trying to use up some older Cosmo Cricket papers this weekend.  This one came together easily with these cute papers, some red seam binding, yellow gingham ribbon, flowers, and a happy birthday stamped sentiment in a journalling sticker.  Simple, right?

Here are some of my favorite challenges where I'm excited to play along this week!

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Happy 7th Birthday to this AWESOME challenge blog.

Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - Challenge #152 - Happy 6th Birthday to this AMAZING and fun challenge blog.

Reasonable Ribbon Challenge - Challenge #138 - Flowers and Ribbon - That's always a great combination.

Word Art Wednesday - Challenge #224-225 - Family Friendly/Anything Goes

CropStop - Challenge #14 - Use any product from CropStop - I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Black Soot to stamp my birthday image.
