May Birthday Blessings Fill You with Joy!

Hello friends!    I have another card to share with you today using this month's Our Daily Bread designs release.  This set is Chalkboard - Birthday and Thanks.   I wanted to show that because these stamps have a solid background, you can easily stamp them with any color or technique that you like!  Chalkboards are definitely trending right now... but for those times you are sending to someone who you know would prefer softer colors, this stamp is still the perfect solution!  I stamped my white card stock with Sage Shadow Ink, which was a perfect match for this pretty designer paper from BasicGrey called True Love.  I used ruby red and sage shadow card stock, and also white for the SB Lattice frame.  I cut my mat with SB Lable 23 and sponged each layer.  Most layers are popped up with dimensionals.  At the bottom is an Martha Stewart edge punch (Lattice but I only used part of it that looks like ric rak)  The ribbon is May Arts.  A little bling and metal rose are my only embellishments.  I decorated the inside with coordinating paper.  Hope you like it!

I am entering this in the following challenges:
 Cards by Lady Anne / Monday Anything Goes Challenge - Anything Goes, Crafty Bloggers Network -  Anything Goes, Forever Friends -  Use Ribbon or Lace, Love to Create - celebrate, Make it Monday - always Anything Goes,  Paper Playtime - Border Punches' MyGrafico -  Anything Goes, The Crazy Challenge -  Birthday, Word Art Wednesday- use their freebie sentiment, or any encouraging or faith based sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Hi Grace: Before I forget, I want to congratulate you on your win with that STUNNING chalkboard card you made last week. It really was an amazing card, and you deserved that win. I do want to ask you about the black floral paper you used on that card, and the sweet floral paper you've used on this card. Would you mind telling me the brand/line for both of those? If it's not too much trouble to shoot me an email.
Your cards always amaze me, and I am SO very grateful to have you share your God-given talents in our challenges. I appreciate it, and you, SO very much. I hope that the Lord is blessing you with a wonderful week. God is just SO GOOD to give us such pretty things for our eyes to see (like your beautiful art). THanks for sharing!
