A Birthday Wish ...


It's taken me a while to upload this post as Blogger has gone and changed the whole dashboard around ... don't you hate it when they go and change things!  I liked it the way it was ... please bring it back!

Anyways, I was asked to make a birthday card and this image 'Birthday Parade' by Rachelle Anne Miller @ PaperWorksCo was a particular request.  So I pulled this paper and went with the combo of pink/brown as my inspiration.  Aren't the polka dots just so much fun!  I coloured with copics and finished the card off with a fab ribbon and some pink pearls.

Here's a sneek at the inside view of the card.

A close-up of the coloured image ... just love this colour combo!!  I am so honoured as Rachelle Anne Miller, the illustrator of these stamps, has just emailed me to tell me how much she loves this card and wants to post it on her blog!  Wow - pop on over and check out her site!

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Colour Challenge

*As a post-edit note, I couldn't even finish writing this post as the new dashboard layout was driving me crazy and it just wasn't working for me.  SO ... I emailed blogger my comments telling them how much I hated it and guess what ... they changed it back!!!  Yippee!!

Thanks for stopping in folks!  It has been a scorcher of a day here at 42oc with the humidex!  A swim in the neighbours pool has cooled us down and it looks like the thunderstorm is ready to hit any second!  I hope that brings the humidity down for tonight and tomorrow.

Take care and thanks for any comments you may leave.  I plan on blog hopping a bit more tonight and do some catch up!

This truly is a cute card. The pink and brown are wonderful. Our rain barrel is still empty, the storm passed us by, but the electrical show was pretty.
