Okay, a quick word about my card. It was totally inspired by my youngest, who just turned three a week and a half ago. Happy Birthday, Gabriel! I stamped Fred Bear Has A Birthday on one of MFT's Perfect Paper Panels, then colored it with Copics and Prismacolor pencils and die-cut it into a circle. The designer papers are a combination of October Afternoon's Farm Fresh and Report Card. Layout is {mostly} one of Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenges (#66). The "Look Who's Turning" sentiment and the number 3 are from MFT's Bling 'Bers. I've filled the circles on the number with silver brads from the Summer Baby Braddies Adornments. The scallops on the striped paper have been cut with the MFT Die-namics Jumbo Scallop edge die, and the blue mat behind it was cut with the Die-namics Scalloped Scallop edge die. These dies are awesome - I can't put them down!

Here's a look at the finished inside. The Happy Birthday sentiment is part of Fred Bear Has A Birthday.
