It's Your Birthday!!!

TGIF everyone!!! 
I had scheduled my post to be up this morning, and I come home to find that not only did it not post, but it completely disappeared! tsk, tsk... I am typing with frozen fingers! Oh how they ache! 
This morning there was a Pumpkin Festival of sorts at my kiddos school today,
and everything was outside in this 50-something degree windy weather we are having!
Eeeek! They had to cut it short a few minutes, these poor Kindergartens were really starting to feel the cold too, poor wee ones... 

and yes, I am feeling so much better now! Have had a lingering cold for over a week, and just started to feel like myself again yesterday! I hope that I didn't overdo it with today already, lol! Oh well, that's why we have weekends for, right?! ;)

Now that I'm thawing out and can somewhat feel my fingers a bit ;) 
I want to share my card for today's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge!!! 

For today's sketch, I used Taylor Expressions a la carte stamp, 
"It's Your Birthday"..

The last time that I used this stamp, the colors were dark, you can see it here! 
So for this time, I was really in the mood to play with some bright colors 
and decided to pull some scraps from my Echo Park pad 
and have some fun with the sketch...

I created a second card too! 
but left off the 2 side panels, lol! 
Just goes to show that maybe I shouldn't be creating when I'm not feeling so good ;) 
Oh, and instead of using ribbon, I used Taylored Expressions die, 
"Basic Bow

Here's the awesome sketch: 

... and here are the stamps and dies I used:
