A Springtime Birthday . . .

Happy Tuesday Friends!
Well, once again we have snow on the ground but I
keep telling myself Spring is right around the corner!  And,
to lift my spirits, I went in search of a few challenges to
enter into.  Here's what I came up with.

To start with, I've been wanting to get back into play along at the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge Blog. Here's this week's sketch if you'd like to follow along ...
 And, here are a couple of other challenges I had in mind while creating ...
Pile It On Challenge #151 - Pretty in Pink

Here's a peek at the inside ...

The inside of your card is always a good place to use some of
the extra tidbits left over from the front of your card.

The sentiment is a stamp set from Penny Black and I've stamped it onto

Other products used on my card are:
Memory Box 'Share the Happiness' (#30007)
Mintay by Karola 'Springtime' 6x6 designer paper (double sided)
Martha Stewart 3-in-1 butterfly punch

As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!

  6. Cute sketch! I haven't played along for a while, but I always love Julee's sketches. And just look what you did with that gorgeous Mintay paper! Love all the flowers and gingham and the whole springtime vibe of this!

  7. Love what you did with the sketch, such pretty papers and I love the butterflies in the paper and then your added butterflies to it, great way to dress up the inside

  8. Pretty card, like a breath of Spring air, which I think we could all use abut now...and look at that Mintay paper...YUM!! (they have new pads out now)...just 'sayin'!
