Kristina Werner Color Inspiration Challenge #28 - Birthday wishes!

Good Thursday Afternoon everyone,

Today is the first day that my daughter has not had a fever (knock on laminated wood). I can't even tell you what a crazy few days it has been around here - she has been just super fussy crying if I hold her - crying if I put her down.... but today - she seemed much better and back to her mischievous self :) 

What do I mean by mischief you ask? Well, while I was talking to Brooke this afternoon, she managed to dump out a tube of glitter, take a bite of a candle, dump a container of blank CD-R on the floor, and rip her shirt.... she is quick and I am just not quick enough.... Who needs to go workout when there are a few munchkins to chase around.... No need to worry about getting bored around here!

While she was napping, I had a chance to do Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge. Check out the fun coin purse inspiration that Kristina picked for this weeks challenge. These colors were definitely challenging -but they totally grew on me. I loved the contrast of the bright orange and pink colors with the sage shadow green color. 

So I thought I would go with a flower theme for a birthday card for my friend whose big day is next week (good thing she doesn't read my blog :) I created the flowers on Photoshop and then cut each of them out - that felt like it took forever - and then adhered them onto the card stock ... and popped some out on dimensionals. I also added a few white brad buttons on a few of the flowers just for a little more white accents on the card. 

It's always so weird for me to work on Kristina's challenge during the day - kinda throws me off a bit :) Can't wait to go and see what everyone else has created!

Don't forget to come back tomorrow for our Cinema Saturday SNEAK PEEK Friday!!! 
We promise you that our pick for this week's movie inspired challenge - is a fun one!!

Thanks so much for coming over for a visit!!

Ciao for now,
Sankari :)

Wow that is a lot of cutting, good on you for putting all that work into it, your friend will love it. Looking foward to CinemaSCC

Glad to hear DD is feeling better. Try to take care of yourself & rest up, as I find as soon as the kids are well is when I get sick.
