Happy Day!

I used one of the March 2009 sketches from Page Maps to do this layout. It didn't turn out to be anything like I had intended/hoped, but I'm glad to be done. I thought this one would be a quick one to put together, but instead, I struggled with it for almost two weeks. Hard to believe since its so plain, but sadly, it's true!! ;o) I think that's why I've really enjoyed making cards so much lately. They take me hours to complete, but not weeks like my layouts often do!

The paper is from a retired pack called Building Blocks, along with Sunny Yellow and Cranberry cardstock and Sunny Yellow, Cranberry, Moonstruck and Sweet Leaf ink. I also used Cobblestone Alphabet, Journaling Jots, and Birthday Invitation (retired) stamp sets. The balloons I believe are from Jolee's By You, and I added some sparkle to the cake with Finishing Accents clear rhinestone stickers and red and yellow Stickles to the candles. The embroidery floss is Royal Blue from Making Memories.
