Birthday Card ~ Celebration {1st Post}

Hello my sweet bloggie friends.
I hope your summer has been a safe and fun one so far.
I am working 11 hour days in a building with no air conditioning so...

I have a birthday card to share that could really be used for anyone.
Sketch challenges can sometimes be challenging for me.
Sometimes the ideas just click sometimes not so much.
This sketch is definitely one that clicked.
I guess that is why Julee called it Mojo Monday. lol.
I think this has to be my all time favorite birthday stamp.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Sentiment from the Birthday To You Plain Jane stamp from Verve Stamps.
*Circles cut using the Nesting Circles die set from We R Memory Keepers
*Design paper from the Hip Hip Hooray 6x6 pad from Doodlebug Design.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad from Tsukineko.

May your day always be filled with love and laughter.
Crafty hugs,
