Birthday Wishes in Yellow

After a busy week I finally had some time to sit and stamp so I played along with the current challenges over at The Paper Players and Freshly Made Sketches. It's a lovely rainy fall day in southcentral Alaska (yep, fall is here already!) so a perfect time to sit and relax.

The Paper Players has a Tic Tac Toe challenge, I always enjoy those! I decided to go with the " birthday/yellow/patterned paper" column as I love the color yellow and am always in need of birthday cards!

My card base is Daffodil Delight and I did some faux stitching around it in Basic Black. I then layered some yellow paper from Sweet Taffy DSP on a strip of Basic Black. Vivid Vases was stamped on Whisper White but I left the sentiment that is underneath the image off and instead stamped a sentiment from the retired hostess set Happiest Birthday Wishes. The image was colored with SU Blendabilities.

A pretty simple card that takes no time at all! It actually took me longer than it should have because I kept jumping on FB and going into the living room to bug my son :)

Make sure you head by both blogs to check out the challenges! The Paper Players Tic Tac Toe challenge ends at noon on Fri PST.
