CARD: Birthday Cheer

I enjoyed a nice quiet Saturday -- the first in quite awhile that I had nothing planned!  It was so nice to have time to catch up with household chores, and then stamp for fun!!  One of my favorite things to do is play along with challenges, and I just haven't had a lot of time to do that lately!  So, I checked my pinterest board to see what I could do!  Here's a card that meets THREE challenges!!  I really like the way it turned out -- this color combination is so fun!!!


The color combo came from Fab Friday:

The layout is from CAS(E) this Sketch!:
