Clearly Inspired Challenge #14 plus a Sweet Sketch!

Hello! I am so happy that I found some time to craft and participate in a couple of challenges! It has been awhile since I have been able to sit down and play in the craft room.. I chose to combine two of my favorite challenges, the first being the Clearly Inspired Challenge #14 - create a Birthday card and the second is the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I will be back into my crafting and blogging routine soon enough, once things settle down here at Casa Bryant that is. We  just got back from our Florida & Florida beach vacation last week , where we got to hang out with my BFF, Cassie, and we are off to Lubbock,TX tomorrow where my husband is competing in the 1/2 ironman triathlon. Yep, a half ironman tri .. that totals 70.3 miles in total. Then, my DH heads back to work, and I can get back to crafting, where I can hear my new stamps, accessories and dp calling for me to come and play .. lol ..

Ink: Real Red, Momento Tuxedo Black, Tombow Markers: 098, 985, 526, 856, N75

Love your card, image and the colour combo you have used. I love the bright colours. Isn't Labels 1 a lovely label I use it a lot I've also used it as a frame and mounted it with foam dots and cut the frame out of chip board and put my paper of the top. Thanks so much for joining SSW.
