I especially get a lot of use from the smaller sentiments in Debbie's line...I often use small tags as part of my card sentiments...and so many of Debbie's sets are perfect for this and for banner sentiments! In addition, her stamp line includes adorable paper dolls with themed outfits and background images for them. You can also find some beautiful accessories in her Paper Sweeties shop, such as oodles of colors of dyed seam binding sold in generous 4-yard bundles.
The birthday blog hop celebration will be going on for three days...August 2nd, 3rd, and 4th...with different participants each day. Here's a full link list of all the blogs participating on day one:

So without further ado, here's the card I created, using Paper Sweeties Occasions and You Make Me Smile sentiment sets...a bright and summer-colored card filled with flowers...
And just a couple closeup pictures of the rose clusters surrounding the large daisy center flower, atop die cut cardstock flourishes. They all rest inside and on top of a Tattered Angels chipboard frame that's been inked and coated with clear coarse glitter...
The entire "happy birthday" sentiment actually fits on one small tag, but I thought it was more fun to have each word on its own tag inside the embellished memo pin :) ...
