Happy Birthday--And a Big Thank-You

  What fun I am having on this cold Sunday afternoon during Spring Break!  It's funny how we had spring-like weather and blooming azaleas in February, and it's wet and cold at the beginning of Spring Break.  No worries....I am so thankful for some new crafting goodies and the opportunity to use them!  The Reverse Confetti Nesting Circle Dies and the Reverse Confetti Tall Tags were purchased with a gift certificate won at Christina Hor's Hug A Heart Blog Hop.   (Thank you, Christina!)  I hope you will visit Christina's blog.  She is a sweet, talented card-maker whose card drives bless children receiving cardiac care.

This awesome sketch is from the Sunday Stamps Blog, and I took some liberties with the banner element because I was determined to use my new dies.  The sentiment is from Verve's Poppy Birthday.  I cleaned my desk and put my stamps away after using it yesterday, but it was out of the bin again today!

Love your new die and the colors you used for your card! Looks very spring-like and cheery! Thanks for sharing this at PIP Challenges!

Really like how cheery this card is. The gingham is great against the floral and your flower is the perfect embellishment. So happy you entered in the PIP challenge this week.
