Hand Stamped Sentiments and the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge

I had a wonderful birthday today.  My husband and I went to my parent's house and celebrated with them and my sister and her fella.  My mom made my favourite meal...soft tacos...yummy!!  She also made a fabulous homemade chocolate cake with white icing...also my was such a nice day!  Thank you mom and dad!  We just got home, but all day I had been thinking about the sketch at the Sweet Stop and the colours at Hand Stamped Sentiments

This is what I came up with...

I should have paid more attention to the sketch at the Sweet Stop and not relied on my 35 year old brain for I guess the sketch was more of an inspiration...and I loved it!!  The colours at HSS just said "Birthday" to I went with mom told me today she needed more birthday cards for her stash.  So I am putting together a bundle of cards for her...this one will be on the top!

These are different colours to use with this stamp set "Charming" but I think it kinda works...what do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!
