Birthday Celebrations


Hi everyone! Here's the latest card for Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge #42. I used the Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #5 for the layout (I didn't post this on time on Karen's blog).
(Edited to Add 2/20: new picture of card taken in daylight; picture I took last evening was driving me crazy...the More Mustard and Really Rust cardstock didn't look the right colors.)

The colors this week are:
More Mustard, Really Rust, Kiwi Kiss, and Whisper White

I'm off to help my son find a missing library book that is due today. Thanks for looking!


Card Ingredients
Stamps: Upsy Daisy
Paper: More Mustard, Really Rust, Kiwi Kiss
Ink: VersaMark
Tools: Cuttlebug circles embossing folder (I used the backside of the embossed paper here), slot punch (Making Memories)
Other: white embossing powder, rub ons (Love & Happiness - SU!), foam tape, gems (A Stamp in the Hand), More Mustard ribbon

Hi Anthonette! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I know you've had a lot of success on Kristina's challenges, so it means a lot to me that you liked my card!

I just love your card. The angle you used is genius! And the rub-ons! I don't use those nearly enough.

Hugs!
