My challenge for today

Well, let's face it, I have several challenges that occur on a daily basis, but nothing too hateful (thank goodness).  The challenge I'm talking about is my second card that I'll be posting over at CAS-ual Fridays!  I have a feeling there won't be a third because of time restraints, which is no small matter!  Today is my middle boy's birthday, for starters (he turned the big Number Eight!).  His party is this Friday, so of course all the chaotic planning leading up to that day has been eating away at the hours, and you know the rest...blahblah, not enough hours in the day, and all that.  So here is the card I made for the challenge:

I decided I would do the polka-dot/square card/birthday combination for my entry.  The papers I used are by Memory Box and Papertrey Ink (heart paper is by BasicGrey, I think!). This was a great challenge primarily  because I was able to use up some of my scraps, rather than cutting at a new sheet (I'm patting myself on the back as I type that, heh).  The sentiment is from the Bountiful Banners stamps set by Papertrey Ink...and that's pretty much it!  Clean, simple, and a fun quick card to make!  Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day!
