Kristina Werner Color Inspiration Challenge #26 - Happy Birthday!!!



Good Morning Everyone,

How are you all this Thursday? Can you believe that we are halfway through October? Because I cannot quite grasp that - the weather here is starting to get colder and there is a forecast for the possibility of snow this weekend! Whaaat?!?!! Definitely not ready for that - I still haven't put the kids summer clothes away - what can I say - I am a little in denial that summer is over.... (sigh)

But what a better way to get out of the gloom of the approaching winter, than to make a card?? LOL!! Look at this fun set of colors that Kristina Werner came up with for her color inspiration.  I love these bright fun colors together - especially because it was raining all yesterday - and this was a bright and sunny palette. 

It reminded me of spring and so I went the flower route and came up with this Happy Birthday card. 
The punched out flowers are adhered to the punched out squares with a brad and then the leaves were cut out free hand and adhered to the flower base. The ribbons were stacked on top of each other - and the bow was made separately and attached with a glue dot. 
It is hard to see the "Happy Birthday" sentiment because of the sunlight hitting the card - sorry about that... Well, I am off to work on my lecture for today - hope all of you are enjoying your Thursday and hope you get moments to relax and enjoy the beauty of the day :)

Come back on Saturday and play with us at Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge this Saturday! - you check the details HERE!!

Thanks for coming over for a visit,
Best wishes,
Sankari
