Happy Birthday!

A very happy birthday to my sister, Mary and a best girlfriend, Denise who celebrated their birthdays this week!

I took a break from making holiday cards and enjoyed making this quick birthday card for the SCS Inspirational challenge (IC207) where I chose this fabric covered button from the Etsy store 'aimoobaroo' for my inspiration. I also used the sketch from the Card Positioning System challenge (CSP142).

I used an retired SU! scrappin' kit called "Just Delightful". I love the colors in this kit and still have some of the DSP and stickers. The images are acrylics from the $1 bins. I liked the cupcake image but it doesn't stamp very crisp so I added glitter, which I think looks fun for a b-day card. I'll be back late tonight to check out blogs. I'm off to run errands, shop with one of my daughters who is home from college and go to the local craft fair.
Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend!!
