Happy Thursday to you all!! I was hoping to get this posted earlier but I had my daughter's piano lessons first thing. Trying to get the girls up, fed and to piano lessons at 8 a.m. is a real challenge. Well we are back and ready to start our day!

The card I am sharing with you today is one of my absolute favorites from Our Daily Bread Designs called Happy Birthday. This time I tried to use fewer Layers and give it a cleaner look. Amazingly, no sewing either. I used the color challenge from last week CC230 (cameo coral, blush blossom, certainly celery, and close to cocoa). The image is watercolored.

For more inspiration on the two new sets released this month from Our Daily Bread Designs, you really should take a peek at these awesome creations by my dt sisters, Sandee, Betty, and Deb!!!! They are Phenominal!!!! Deb even has a link to a tutorial on how she colored her image with copics on her blog! Believe me when I say there is some real eye candy for you there!!!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- Happy Birthday
Paper: Blush Blossom, Ivory, Close to Cocoa
Tools: Swiss Dots Embossing folder, MS Border Punch, Spellbinders Label one die, Vintage Corner die
Embellishments: Sheer peach ribbon, Button, MS pearls

Thanks for stopping by today. Since it is raining (again), I hope to do some stamping as well as some housework. I must say that I will be praying unceasingly that my craftroom will not get flooded once again either since there are flood warnings here. Have a great day!! I look forward to visiting your blogs for more inspiration!
