Crop Chocolate Challenge

Today I want to share a challenge project that I am posting over at Crop Chocolate. About six weeks ago the website closed the retail side. I was disappointed. This website was the main reason I was able to afford my crafting craze!! I hadn't been over there for a while, so I decided to check in on the challenge and I have just discovered that the retail side will re-open with a different flair. I look forward to seeing what they have in store!! Ok...back to my challenge project. The challenge is to make something that is inspired by something that is your favorite. You are also supposed to use your favorite stamp. Well...the first part was a piece of cake! The second wasn't as easy. My favorite stamp!!! Ummmm....I have so many!!! So I decided to go with the stamp that I get the most use from...which would have to be a happy birthday stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs. I make TONS of birthday cards!!! Now...on to my inspiration. My inspiration is two fold. First, the person behind the inspiration is my faithful friend. She inspires me with her work that is TOP NOTCH!! Miss are my inspiration!!! The second piece to my inspiration is the color combination. I made the card purple, green and teal because those are my favorite colors and I think they work quite well together!!! And now for the reveal...

It's Lindy's birthday card!!
