IC131 Happy Birthday


Good Morning everyone!!!

Have you seen today's *Inspiration Piece* that Stephanie has chosen??? If not I have the link for you right here.

I have chosen this picture for my card. I was inspired my the colors and the mirror. After seen the Great Swap Girls Sketch Challenge I knew I wanted to use this layout.

My base is Whisper White. I have added a bigger strip of Bashful Blue and a small strip of Pixi Pink first. Then another smaller strip of Bashful Blue on the bottom. Next I have added the DS Bashful Ribbon.

The main image is from the fabulous *Live Your Dream* Set which I have stamped with Wild Wasabi and Pixi Pink Stampin Spots. The little butterfly was inked in Basic Black. Next I have cut the Basic Black scalloped oval and the center piece with Nestie's. This part was raised with Stampin Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the *All Holidays* Set and it was also inked in Basic Black. To finish it all off I have added the *medium* Silver Brads from Making Memories.

Hope you like it and maybe you will be inspired by Stephanie's awesome *IC*?!? Stay tuned I have another card coming!!! ~TFL~

This color combo is fantastic! I never would have thought of it. I especially like it used with the Live Your Dream set. I've only used that set for one class and we used it with the Afternoon Tea DSP. It looks great with these colors too. A totally different look. LOVE IT!
