Isn't this a fun challenge?! I love the inspiration graphic - those stripes and dots!! De-lish!! My daughter has a birthday party coming up this weekend, so she helped me pick out the paper - so there are lots and lots of polka dots on this one! Ha!

One of my go-to birthday sentiments is from Treasured Words, which I stamped in bright pink ink so it stands out nicely.

I added a few enamel dots around the sentiment, and now that I'm looking at the photo of the card, maybe I should have added stars or balloons or something - wow, that's a lot of dots!


Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines!
