happy birthday ~ 2S4Y

Here is Laura's fantastic Sketch #56 for today over at 2 Sketches 4 You. What a perfect layout to gather a ribbon border! We also got to use ANY images we wanted this week for our sample card, so I picked my new favorite image from the Friends Never Fade stamp set.

The Color Throwdown #100 was the color inspiration for my card using Real Red, Regal Rose, Baja Breeze & Certainly Celery. The gals over at the Color Throwdown are celebrating their 100 challenge this week in a big way with lots of prizes...go check it out.

My sister's birthday is tomorrow, so I chose a birthday sentiment from On Your Birthday stamp set along with this beautiful flower image from the new Friends Never Fade stamp set. What's great about a sister is they are also an unconditional friend! Love you, Tammy!

Thanks for stopping by!
