Birthday card challenge

Today I have a birthday card to share. Bethany was home this weekend so we stamped together ... so much fun! Unfortunately, I did not get any pictures of her cards before she headed back to UAB. She looked through some magazines and found a simple layout that we were both to use. Her goal when stamping is to make simple cards that she can mass produce since she doesn't have a lot of crafting time. We both made birthday cards since I wanted to participate in The Paper Players birthday card challenge. I like to have lots of different kinds of birthday cards in my stash. 

With those two elements in mind, my inky fingers went to playing and created this clean and simple card. Seems to be my style lately. 

Stamps: Pun Fun 
Paper: Vanilla, Pacific Point 
DSP: Ice Cream Parlor 
Ink: Memento Back 
Accessories: photo corner punch, flower brads (non SU), Prismacolor markers, Spellbinders rectangle dies 
All products are Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted. 

I hope everyone had an awesome weekend and the rest of the week is a good one! Mine was wonderful since both children came home. We went golfing on Saturday after watching those Auburn Tigers struggle for a win. It has been raining since Sunday but that's okay since we really need the rain. The temperatures have dropped too. It is actually chilly today at 65 degrees. 

Have a great day,

Pam, this is just too cute. Your daughter made a good choice on the layout. I'm turning green that you have a daughter to stamp with. LOL Now, that is serious fun. The card is just darling...love the papers and the image.
Glad your team won. I almost burned up during our game and was so glad to hear the final buzzer. It was 95 degrees. Whew! Talk about a cool down today. But, I don't like it. I want summer back. Ha
