I have a lot of birthday cards to make over the next couple of weeks. When I saw this fantastic quote about celebrating your life from Oprah Winfrey, I thought it would make a great birthday card. This sentiment was a free download from Raindrop Echo Designs for Whimsy Stamps.
If you like this sentiment, you also might want to check out Ann's new challenge blog, Sentimental Sundays. She has basic sentiments set which is available for free download.
I added the brownish pearls at the very end. I have been saving these, who knows for what, but now I actually used them on a project. I am challenging myself to continue to use all these "special" things that I have stashed. They aren't too special when they are sitting in their packaging where no one can enjoy them.
** Updated - I was in the super 6 for the Card Patterns Sketch #60
I hope you have a great day!
