Chalk Studio birthday card

If you are here for the Season's Givings Blog Hop click here

It is my Mother in Law's 70th birthday tomorrow.  All of us are heading out of town for a dinner to celebrate.  I created this card using the Chalk Studio by My Mind's Eye along with a sticker from SRM Stickers and some dies from My Favorite Things.



I am playing along with the Fusion sketch challenge - I was inspired by the sketch, and used a Silhouette cut for the circles (it was one I created before thus I swayed from the sketch a bit)

I was also inspired by a beautiful card on Keisha Campbell's blog - her card is gorgeous!
