Paper Smooches: March 2019 BIRTHDAY challenge #1

Hello, friends:}

I'm sharing my first Paper Smooches March 2019 BIRTHDAY challenge creation today. EVERY DAY it's someone's birthday- that's why I need to build up my stash 😉 I already have missed 5 birthdays this month. 🤦🏼‍♀️  Photo Credit: Brooke Lark

I needed something quick this week (so I didn't miss ANOTHER birthday), so I found a clean and simple card by Julie Ebersole (October 2017) that I could CASE. Her style is simple, fabulous, and always leaves me inspired! 

I started with an all gray background and dry embossed the polka dots.... but it just was too dark, like no one would want to celebrate after seeing that card! LOL! So I went with a white background, dry embossed the polka dots and layered on the accent embellishment and sentiment. EASY:) 
I  used the following PS stamps/dies: Birthday BashPolka Dot Borders dies, and Feather Frame die

That's it for me today! I hope you will join in the fun--- you could win a gift certificate to the PS store! Be sure to stop by HERE to link up and play along:) 

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

Friends- I cannnnnnnnnnot pick which creation to share this month for the blog hop! I love each and every one of my cards... funny that all of them have the same color palette yet so very different!

Since I can only share one, I will share Trav's FAVORITE from this month's set. He calls this card "Fancy Fish". 🙃
The NEW Water dies set comes with lots of different waves, as well as splashes and a fish image. This card design is fairly simple- embossed waves with multicolored fish swimming in a pale pink ocean. I went with a pink ocean because I thought it would be unique and fun.
I really wanted to put a sentiment on the front. I still might add "Can't wait to SEA you again." from the PS Summer Sampler set!

Be sure to stop by the PS blog for details about this blog hop and giveaway! And don't forget to leave some love along the hop:) 

That's it for me today- THANK YOU so much for stopping by! Be blessed ❤️
