Dotted Birthday

More new stuff!  Isn't this bicycle stamp cute?!  It is part of the new Ronald McDonald House stamp set called Moving Forward.  Every year Stampin' Up! designs a stamp set which they donate $3 of the proceeds of every sale to the Ronald McDonald House and this is it.  I stamped it in Basic Gray then added the little flowers which I colored with Old Olive and Marina Mist markers.  And I didn't even need the Stamp-a-Majig, just eye-balled it! 

The sentiment is from the new Itty Bitty Banners cut out with the Bitty Banners framelits set.  Once again found a use for the new Polka Dot Parade DSP too. 

Here is the inside shot.  Wanted to keep with the circles theme inspired by the bicycle wheels so I added a few punched circlesm, a bit of ribbon and the birthday sentiment from the retired Happiest Birthday Wishes set.  My niece is turning two this weekend so this one is for her.

 I'm just tickled with how this one turned out.  Let me know what you think!

Here is the sketch challenge I used for this card.  For the Paper Players 100th challenge celebration you get to choose any of their previous 100 challenges so I chose PP53.  I love this sketch- it is perfect to showcase a fun variety of DSP and still keep it clean & simple, just my style!  Click on the picture for a link to the challenge.  Thanks for stopping by again!
