From Courtney's Closet Celebration!!


My sweet blogging friend, Libby from Libby's Little Addiction is having a fun celebration. Her sweet and adorable daughter, Courtney is turning one today!! Happy Birthday, Courtney!! Anyhow...Libby does a weekly inspiration challenge called "From Courtney's Closet", and today she wanted to do an extra special challenge with a chance to win wonderful prizes for those who play along. Libby has also asked some of her friends including myself (thanks Libby!), to play along and make some samples for the challenge.

Here's my card using the photo for inspiration:
Stamps: Valentines Remix (DoodleFactory at Starving Artistamps), Sweet Celebrations (SASI)
Card Stock: PaperTrey Select White, Pink Passion
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers
Accessories: Scor-Pal, Circle & Scalloped Circle Nestabilities, Eyelet Border punch (SU), ribbon, Scotch foam tape
And here are the other talented ladies to check out:
