Taking a Breather

....from all those Christmas cards and sneaking in a little birthday card for my sister-in-law :)

I used the current sketch over at MFT's Wednesday Stamp Club for inspiration and the MFT a la modes Big Birthday Wishes stamp set.  I found my DCWV The Glam Gal collection paper pad that I totally forgot I had!!  It's kinda like getting an early Christmas present.  I had forgotten how much I love these fun and girly; and perfect for a birthday card.

I completely paper pieced her and her balloons, added a Prima flower and a Doodlebug Designs button, some Queen & Co. twine and a few brads laying around in that stash of mine.  There is some pink chalk ink from Studio G around her just to give her a little something extra.

Hoping you have a good day ahead of you and thanks for stopping by for a peek :)
