Tropical birthday card and a few challenges

I've got a tropical themed birthday card for you todayjust right for summerusing stamps from Inspired by Stamping and tropical themed papers from Graphic 45. On the front, I used IBS Big Wishes Happy Birthday and Background Basics III Music stamp.

I finished up the inside with this stamp from IBS Big Notes III have all the "Big" sets and I use the heck out of them, inside my cards and outside, their size makes them easy to read. Plus, they're reasonably priced!

By the way, if you're in the market for some new sentiments, all of Inspired by Stamping sentiments are on sale through the end of the month for 20% off.

I'm playing along with a few challenges with this card. I've used the colors from the Color Throwdown #251.

I've used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #95.
