I am combining a challenge and my inspiration post today.
Our Daily Bread designs for their 6th Anniversary would like us to use only their stamps on this challenge, now we are suppose to use our favorite stamps, I can't choose a favorite but I do love this stamp, and all the birthday greetings that go with it. I also bought the die to cut it out, love the look that gives, and it gets nice and close. You can find out all the details about the challenge HERE on their blog.
Also today is the first and I have an inspiration card too. Shirley does such beautiful cards, and she gives details on everything she does, she is great about sharing things she learns. Here is a link to Shirley's blog , and the card that I used for my inspiration today. She did a beautiful job to give it dimension, I didn't go that far, but I did like the colors in her flowers and tried to do the same on my flower bouquet.
I used the antique linen distressed ink around the sentiment and the "doily" square.
