Skipping Stones Blog Hop- Green Birthday Release!

Hi there!  Thanks for stopping by!  Today Skipping Stones is releasing another hilarious stamp set called Green Birthday!  I love this set and it's funny sentiments!  Check it:

"Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop to celebrate the release of Green Birthday! If you've just happened upon my blog today, make sure to start from the beginning at Skipping Stones Design. You should have arrived here from Ann's blog.  Combined with the blog hop today, it's also Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday which means we're showcasing another great creation from our Guest Sketch Artist this month, Heidi Blankenship. We'd love for you to play along with the sketch and link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog. Also, remember to use SSD68 if you post to any on line sites."

Here is my card:

And here is the sketch!

Started with a Spring Moss card base, embossed with a square Spellbinders die.  Paperpieced my cake using Life of the Party by BasicGrey. 

Using Bannerific from Lawn Fawn I paper-pieced each banner.

Lastly, I stamped my sentiment and added a few stars included in the set. 

Well, that is all for me!  I hope you enjoyed and be sure to go see Barb next!
