Shape Cards & Birthdays

 Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing two fun cards featuring three newly released Sweet n Sassy stamp sets! For my first creation I decided to make a mini shape card using the Springtime set. If you look closely you'll see a bit of white ink smeared on my black circle to create a chalkboard effect.  (The second photo shows it up better.)
