Happy Belated Birthday {Past Due}

Good morning!!  Well, I have the my first cold of the school year!! LOL  It was bound to happen with a new school and new germs to get used to.  Fortunately it's one of those functioning colds where if you have enough Sudafed in you, you can continue on as usual :) LOL  Today's card is for Stacey's Curtain Call Colour Challenge :)  I love her inspiration photos and rich colours.  I just got my Cosmo Cricket Pixie-Licious and Mitten Weather papers in the mail on Friday and was delighted to find paper in both these packs that were the challenge colours.  The card idea came to me last night and I threw some things on the desk before going to bed.  I love how the green ribbon contrasts against the card and that fun flower brad with button (another brad from that Dollar Store pack!).  Here's a close up....
Well, that's about all for today...I'm working on my cards for the PTI blog hop next Saturday...it's a dull, rainy day here...perfect to stay in and create :)  Have a glorious day :)

what's in it?
stamps: verve wish big; pti it's official
ink: versafine onyx; su going gray, ruby red
paper: su peach parfait, rich razzleberry; pti cream; cosmo cricket dps
accessories: pti notepage die, ribbon, button; twine, flower brad; gemstones

Hope you didn't catch that cold from me, Diva! Can you catch them through Blogland?! Hopefully you'll be better in no time.
Now that DP is delicious - can't believe how well it fits for the challenge! It's a sign you were meant to have it :D
Hugs,

Ugh, my daughter was home 2 days last week with a bad cold, those schools seem to be petri dishes of germs! Pop that good ole Vitamin C and carry on dear! Love your card, I would've never known you were under the weather when you made it because it's so cheery! Great job with the color challenge and I agree with you on the bow...it's fabby!
