Inspired By Stamping Favorites

Good morning stampers!! 

This month at Inspired By Stamping we are doing things a little different!

We were asked to create some cards using our favorite stamp sets!

How exciting!  This was NO problem as I love IBS stamps!!  The only problem was that I like too many and so I didn't know which set to start with!!


First up is a card I created to send to Joanna and had just realized I never posted it on my blog!
This card uses The Sky's The Limit set!  I created a card similar to this in December for the sets release in shades of blue, but was inspired to create another one using some fun colors!  These balloons are so fun along with the cute clouds and great sentiments!


Next up is a card inspired by a sketch:
So excited, to tell you that Joanna, owner of IBS, has started a weekly Inspiration Challenge!!  Each Thursday a new challenge is posted...this week happens to be the above sketch!

All you have to do is create a card based off the sketch and link it to the Challenge blog!  You have a chance at winning some IBS goodies, which is the best part!!  Be sure to join in the fun!

Here's the card I created:

For this card I used Butterfly Wings, one of my many favorite sets from IBS to add the tiny butterflies around the sentiment and the large one o!!  Lately, I have been obsessed with butterflies!! The sentiment is from the set All Year Wishes 2!  A great set full of wonderful sentiments!!
