Stampin’ Up! More “Big on Birthdays” Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Another Thursday and that means more hopping with our Happy Inkin’ Thursday team.  Today we had a sketch challenge and I took some liberties (again).   The “Big On Birthdays” stamp set is moving to the annual catalog and I am very happy about that.  Today’s share is using that set and some of the retiring Party Animal DSP.  Now if you don’t have this paper the great thing about this card is you can use any paper you have, just change the ink colors to match the paper you choose, Easy Peasy!


Oh and do you notice our new banner?  Same great group and same wonderful team. We just changed out look.  I hope you like it, I sure do!

Here is the sketch:

I turned my card orientation to vertical and switched my art piece to the left.  For some reason they always seem backward to me when the art piece is on the right.  (I am such a rebel, lol)
