Happy Birthday 2U

Hi everyone! One of my favorite people is having a birthday tomorrow. I made this card for her using Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge #55. I loved the skirt, shoes, and feet of the inspiration photo. Kristina's boss has excellent taste!

The colors this week are:
basic gray, rust, mustard, and cream/vanilla


My little guy wants to play a game before dinner, so I'll make this quick. Have a good one and thanks for looking!
