Sweet Fairy Birthday...

Love is to the heart what the summer is to the farmer's year. It brings to harvest all the loveliest flowers of the soul. - Billy Graham
Hello there! Long time no post, I know! I was out of town for the holiday...and while I was gone I had a bit of an accident on a Wave Runner that has made stamping nearly impossible...but a couple of bruised ribs couldn't keep me from the rubber and ink for long! :)

Here is my card inspired by this week's Cupcakes...

Besides the obvious color choices I was inspired by the little mushrooms on the cupcake at the far left...I know there are no mushrooms on my card, but fun mushrooms always make me think of fairies and sprites!!The inside was decorated...I try to do this with all of my cards these days...and this week's challenge at Party Time Tuesday was to make sure the inside is prettied up too!

Stamps: Fairy on Tiptoe (Lili of the Valley,) Birthday Sentiments & Friends til the End (PTI)
Paper: Green at Heart (Basic Grey,) Blue Bayou, Riding Hood Red (SU,) White (PTI)
