ICS Blog Hop - #Imbringingbirthdaysback

Hello, and welcome to the April ICS Blog Hop!  This month we are talking about birthdays, and showing you some fun ways to make the people in your life feel special, and loved!

Our theme is #‎iambringingbackbirthdays‬ inspired by Shannon West one of the trainer's at Stampin' Up! She posted on her facebook page in January that social media had ruined the good old fashioned birthday card and she was bringing them back this year! One of her posts said if you wanted a birthday card to let her know, and so far, over 1600 people have asked her for a card!

She carved her own #imbringingbirthdaysback stamp, and everyone loved it so much that Stampin' Up! started manufacturing a nearly exact replica, that you can now order for yourself!

For my card today, I decided to use the Rose Wonder stamp set form the Occasions Catalog.  This was the first set I just "had" to have from the catalog.  I fell in love with it instantly.

I was going for something elegant - but simple. 

I hope you enjoyed my card.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Next up on the hop is the lovely, Jennifer!  I am sure she has something fun to share with you!  

Here is a list of supplies I used on my card:
