Stampin’ Up! “Happy Birthday To You” Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today for our blog hop we have a sketch challenge.  The Happy Birthday To You stamp set was inked up to create my card.  I combined the stamp set with the gorgeous designer series paper Best Dressed to complete the design.  What I am most excited about with the Happy Birthday To You set is coming February 4th.   There will be a die that coordinates with this wonderful stamp set. (oh and there are a few more dies coming on February 4th too!)

The sketch:

I changed my sketch from horizontal to vertical and the cake is in place of the circle.  Isn’t it amazing how just a few tweaks change the whole look of a card?
