French Birthday

Did you ever have something in your stash that you just figured you would never use but when you did you loved it?  Today that is me.  I had piece of cardstock in my stash that just wasn't me at all...just a color that I could never find a use for....but now I'm in love!  Our new theme at Digistamps4Joy is "Add A Birthday Sentiment".  I've been working to increase my Birthday card stash so I was ready to get to work.  I decided to use a recent release that showed a Paris theme.  I knew exactly what I wanted to so then I looked at my cardstock pile sitting in front of me and there it was - that one piece that was old and just crying to be used.  I looked past it and was going to use something else but my eye kept going back to that one piece so it was time to figure out a use.  The neat thing is - once the card was done - I LOVED IT!  Now I'm going to have to figure out where I got that once piece and get more!  LOL!!! 


Before I get to the challenges I'm entering into....I just wanted to tell. you a bit about Digistamps4Joy.  If you have never checked out the challenge blog you'll have to stop by - there is always something going on there!  And the shop - OH MY!  There are TONS of digis in just about any theme you could ever dream of...and new ones added every week!  Lastly, the Design Team is quite a group!  I have no idea why they accepted me because my crafting level is no where near theirs!!  They are so talented!!!!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today and spending a few moments with me.  God bless you!!!
