Sweet Birthday Wishes

It seems like it's been awhile since I've posted a card. My summer's been full of family,
trips, chickens and children... with 3 BIG summer parties at our house. 
Phew! I need a vacation. No better place than the craft room!

This card's for Ink to Paper, Laurie's Fabulous Favorites, 
this week's it's Background Stamps.

The background stamp is white embossed within the oval die, Cover Up: Grid,
on water color paper. I then loosely watercolored the grid and fit it inside the 
Pierced Feature Frames: Oval (cut 3 times). 
That's Garden Garland on the outside of the oval.
Laurie's card was full of black and white drama.White on white is my absolute favorite 
technique for drama.  

Ink to Paper Tag Creations: Blooming Indulgence Dies

The many dies in this set are fun to play with. I used colored card stock and the banner 
included in the set, and used a sentiment from Just Sentiments Tagged.

Feels so good be be back in the craft room. I have family coming on Monday.
And we're planning another trip to Yosemite. All's good, and very busy. 
Hope you enjoy your summer, and all the warmth that goes with it.
And especially hope you have some time to create. It just seems to refresh and
