Lavender Birthday - Inspired By Stamping #33

Hello!  I'm playing in the Inspired By Stamping sketch challenge this week, and I adore the layout.

I made a feminine birthday card using a sentiment from Graceful Hydrangeas.  The fancy stuff behind the birthday panel are two flourishes from Parisian Motifs dies, assembled end-to-end.


This Crochet Tape is from the IBS store, too.  It's a breeze to use, and saves me the extra step of applying adhesive myself.



We'd love for you to come play with us, too!  I hope I see you there.  :-)
Have a beautiful day!
