Whispered Birthday Greetings!

Welcome to the grand finale of the Stampendous and Pink Your Life Blog Hop!  We have had a fun week sharing creations using this adorable line of stamps! Be sure to stop at the Stampendous Blog for information on how to win a prize!

Today I'm sharing a birthday card I created featuring the darling PYL Whisper Birthday stamp (PLR01) paired with the Happy Day! sentiment from the Happy Birds set (SSC1255). Add a "springy" background using the Picasso Tool (DWLL332), some bright cardstock and you have a great birthday card for a dear friend!
