Happy Birthday


Happy Wednesday!

I needed a birthday card for a special friend and when I saw The Color Throwdown challenge for this week, I knew immediately what I would do.  I didn't have the exact colors shown in the challenge photo, but they are so awesome at the site - they say, "just get as close as possible".


It was all a bit of trial and error on this shaker card, but by some miracle, there are no earlier versions of this in my trash can.  It just kept coming together.  That rarely happens to me!

So all the products except one are from MFT Stamps.  The only exception is that dotted circle which is a die from Little B.  I didn't know how much I needed that die set.  Oh my!!

Off in the mail my card has gone now and I hope my friend will like it.  

See you tomorrow!

Susie
