Birthday Cheer

birthdaycheer

Good morning!!  Once again, I can’t resist playing along with this week’s colourQ inspiration colours.  Sometimes, when I first see a colour combo or inspiration photo, a certain paper or certain stamp pops into my head.  It happened with this card…this lovely grey gingham by October Afternoon came to mind along with my beloved Button Boutique stamps…hmmm, maybe there’s no surprise there!! I couldn’t resist using the “guaranteed washable” stamp…it makes me laugh out loud for some reason!  Maybe it reminds me of babies…ACK!!  LOL  Adding a sentiment to button cards is not easy for me…but adding a little sentiment tab does the trick ;)  I’ve got a nice little stock pile of cards ready to go to my sister’s work place on Friday!  I hope they like them like my staff :)  Have a lovely Saturday and thanks so much for all your sweet comments :)

I think you are living vicariously through Julee if you have baby on the brain LOL! Great take on the colours and use of the button set. Enjoy your weekend :)

Fabby, as always! The gingham paper is a perfect match to the button card, and the pops of green and rust really bring the design to life. So glad you joined us again this week at the ColourQ!

Your ability to see a color combo work blows my mind. This combo would have me running the other direction, but you've done it up so perfectly. Gorgeous! Those tabs are killing me!
