They Say It’s Your Birthday – InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! Today’s Blog Hop today is filled to the brim with projects that celebrate birthdays. The opening line from The Beatles’ “Birthday” song ran through our heads as we joyfully created the birthday-themed creations we share with you today. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My project for today is a quick, easy, and colorful birthday card featuring the new Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Eclectic Expressions!

I chose a rainbow of colors from the Subtles color family to create the background for this card. Each color is stamped-off once. I love the “happy birthday” sentiment that comes in this set! The finishing touch is a trio of rhinestones.

Tonight is my Weekly Wednesday Facebook Live at 8pm EST on my Facebook Page! CLICK HERE to set a reminder. I hope you’ll join me!
