Happy Birthday!

A quick, cheerful birthday card today!  My favorite thing about Close To My Heart has always been the coordinating inks and papers.  The gorgeous colors are what drew me in...21 years ago!  I still love how I can grab a paper pack and ink and know that everything is going to come together beautifully! My card is based on the sketch this week at Paper Play Sketches-

I loved this sketch when I first saw it...but it has taken me all week to finally have time to sit down and create with it!

B1535 Hooked on You (Birthday Sentiment)

  1. I totally agree with you, and love it when I can grab inks and papers and know that they will match. This is a sweet and quick card and really rocks the sketch. Who doesn't love a balloon on a birthday card. Thanks for sharing with us at Seize the Birthday!
