1st Birthday



This week's Muse card by the fabulous Therese Calvird came along at the perfect time for me.  It's my Goddaughter's 1st birthday party on Saturday and I needed to make a few cards for her.  I actually bought this stamp set after being inspired by a few of Therese's cards so it seemed only right that I use it here.  Aside from the stamp itself I was also inspired by the sweet colours, the patterns and the banner.  It also got me to use some long hoarded My Mind's Eye papers (remember the Quite Contrary collections?) and that is always a good thing!  Hope you all have a fabulous Friday!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Rose Red) Stampin' Up
Patterned Papers:  (Quite Contrary Little Miss Muffet collection) My Mind's Eye
Stamps:  (Elephant from Circus Animals) My Cute Stamps, (Sentiment from Simple Salutations) Market Street Stamps
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (By The Numbers) Papertrey Ink
