Happy 1st Birthday!

Good Morning.  Hope you had a good weekend.  Mine was uneventful which was great.  The weather was hot, humid and rainy.  A perfect weekend to relax in the AC and make a card. 

 Lately I have been trying to change up some of the standard Pink, Blue and Purple colors that I have been using. I get into these ruts where I use the same colors and layouts all the time.   I found this DP and thought it would be perfect for this stamp and to mix things up.   I like the way it turned out.  It fits in perfect for this weeks challenge at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.   We want you to make a card or project for a child.  So get out those cutesie stamps and play along!
