A Birthday Card for Ailis!

My Ailis-girl was born on Valentine's Day, 8 years ago!  I made her this card (not even that late!) with a brand spankin' new, never used Saturated Canary stamp I bought from Creative Accents
Speaking of Creative Accents, have you seen our February Seriously Creative Challenge?  I'm seriously late this month, but here it is:

I was inspired by the colours here, although my palette turned out a bit different.  Now that I'm looking at the two images, I see that the stripes are similar, too.  Anyway, use this photo to inspire your project, link it up at the Seriously Creative Challenges blog before the end of the month, and you could win a prize!

I used this sketch from Graphicat Sketches, and I think I'm getting my card in at the last minute:

The other challenges I'm entering are:

Basic Grey Challenges- use your favourite thing(s) - I think this stamp is my new fave!
Drunken Stampers - theme - princess!  

Thanks for looking, and I'll be back soon with some more projects, promise!
