Happy Birthday, Cris!

One of my dearest friends, Cris, has a birthday on September 11th. Her birthday dinner was abruptly cancelled 7 years ago during that terrible day in our country's history. Tomorrow, she is having a birthday dinner again. We won't be able to make it because of a previous commitment at Kalino's school. I hope she has a great party and a great day.

This card was created for Kristina's
Color Inspiration Challenge #22 . The colors this week are:

This is one of the rare weeks that I have all the cardstock colors. I don't have all the inks though. I was inspired by the collage in the Stampin' Up catalog on p. 161.
