Hello, IBS Friends!

Kendra, here to share some inspiration with you, using the new Color and Sketch inspiration from above!

Inspired by Stamping, Kendra Sand, Fancy Labels 3 Die, Fancy Labels 3 stamp set, All Year Wishes II, Little Phrases, Little Phrases II, birthday card, Cute Circles

I started off by using a few of the dies from the Fancy Labels 3 Die set to create my main focal point of this card.

For the circle die cut, I then added the fun polka dot circle frame from the Cute Circles set, along with the “Happy Birthday” from the All Year Wishes II set.

The blue stamped die cut was stamped with the awesome design from the Fancy Labels III set.

The little “to you” banner was created once again with one of the dies from the Fancy Labels 3 Die and then I used the “to” from the Little Phrases II and the “you” from the Little Phrases set!

How fun!!

I just LOVE the Fancy Labels 3 Die along with the stamps that match!!

So many fun dies and stamps used in this Birthday card!!

Join in, we would love to see what you create!!

    Just found out about your challenge this morning by Mynn leaving a comment on my blog. It was for another card that she wanted me to link but it was already linked to so many, I was over my limit for one of the challenges. Luckily, I had a baby card to post tonight that was just perfect for the photo with gold and pink, so have linked it up. Looking forward to joining in many more!!
