Birthday Bash!

Good morning!
I think I must be dreaming again - how lucky I am...

For the month of August, I will be guest designing for Great Impressions Stamps!
Great Impressions was actually one of the very first stamps that I used many years ago,
when I was becoming so hopelessly addicted to this hobby.  It's fun to be
working with them again!

Today begins the monthly challenge at the Great Impressions Blog
The theme for August is 'Birthday Bash'.  
Here's what I created:

I used Lilly's Garden Time SKU #H10 for my card. 

Here is the card opened up.  The sentiment is Bouquet of Wishes  SKU #D456

Here is a shot of the 'card' opened.

This fun little card is only 2" wide.  I used a punch on each end, and created an easel card.
She's already been mailed to our church secretary!

We'd love to see you join us for the August challenge!
Be sure to check out the challenge rules - you need not use a Great Impressions stamp to enter!

Hope to see you there,

Patti J.

P.S. While out and about, be sure to 'Like' the Great Impressions' Facebook page, and follow the Great Impressions Blog!  The inspiration is incredible - what a talented group of designers they are!!!
