Bold Happy Birthday

Good morning sweet blog buddies and new visitors :)  I know what you may be thinking...what?  No autumn or Christmas card?  Believe me, no one is more surprised than me.  But sometimes things pop in my head right away when I see a sketch (and sometimes I draw a blank! lol) and I have to go for it.  I love the simple sketch this week over at 2 Sketches 4 You.  So many possibilities.  I had aqua and pink on the brain and then added a bit of yellow because of the patterned paper.  I tried to add some bling, but once again, it just didn't work with the buttons :)  I also couldn't find a matching paper for this October Afternoon dp so I put the ribbon over the place that should've had a sliver of cardstock.  Anyone find a good match to this blue?  LOL  The closest for me was PTI's ocean tides, but it still was a bit off.  The aquamist at the bottom isn't too bad, but I wanted a darker blue.  Anyways, I'm starting to ramble so I'll end it here :)  We have the day off here tomorrow (Remembrance Day) so I'll be writing only a few reports as I like to enjoy my day off without working.  I also plan to organize my PTI dies like Dawn did here.  Have a wonderful Wednesday and thanks for spending a few minutes of your day with me :)

stamps: pti fillable frames #4
ink: su mustard, versafine onyx
paper: pti aquamist, cream, hibiscus burst, bitty box basics; su mustard; k&company and october afternoon dps

More times than not my mind draws a blank when I see a sketch LOL! Have to ponder it for sometime before the juices start flowing - the trials of a non-creative mind LOL! Fun mix of DPs and a darling frame and sentiment panel. I need more time for organizing my stuff - need a road trip ;)

Oooh, Maureen, this color combo ROCKS! Great mix of patterns, too!

Aimes said...

Glad you went for it, Diva! This colour combo is FABULOUS! Sometimes you just gotta let your buttons and bling fight it out on a card y'know ;D
Hey, do you know what made an appearence today....? Yup - my mittens! It's so cold over here!

Enjoy your day off tomorrow! My boys are off tomorrow, but I'm not :(...taking Friday off for a scrapbooking weekend though so I certainly can't complain! Love your card...I'm always impressed at how you combined patterned paper...I seem to stick to one patterned paper...need to be more daring!

Still catching up on your blog. (Took a little break...) Love this birthday card. The combination of papers and the colors are gorgeous! (Guess you can't always have both buttons and bling. :) )
