Inspired by...Sarah!

Hi folks! I just can't wait to share the 6 days of creations this week by the ultra-talented Sarah (sarahjane4kids for us flickr folks)! But choosing only six is going to be nearly impossible! Not only does she make incredible cards, but her scrapbook pages are excellent, too! Be sure to check out her flickr PHOTOSTREAM!
Here is our first card by Sarah:

The has to be the happiest Happy Birthday card ever! I love the bright colors and patterns. The combination of the flourish and polka dots embossed in white add to the festive feel of this beauty! Oh- and I nearly forgot-- the shape is genius!!
Here is my take:Thanks so much for stopping by! I just know you will ADORE Sarah's creations this week! She's one talented stamping chica! ;)
Supplies--Stamps: All Hero Arts (CL3887, CG139, CL374); Ink: Distress Ink (Tim Holtz/Ranger), Black Ink (Stampin' Up), Copic Marker; Other: Glossy Accents (Ranger), Pearls (Recollections), Butterfly Punch (Fiskars), Misc. Cardstock, Dimensional Adhesive (All Night Media)
