PDCC #88-Happy Birthday!

Photo inspiration with colors of Redish/orange, yucky yellow, and juniper!

Hi All!

How's it going?  Hope your weekend is going well!  What a challenge over at The Play Date Cafe this week!  Those colors were quite the challenge for me!  My paper and button are reddish/orange, but the photo looks like they are more of a pink color.  Anyways, it was fun creating this card for a co-worker's birthday this month.  It sure is a steamy hot day today!  We are thinking of ordering a pizza and watching a movie.  Thank goodness for air conditioning!  Ok, thanks so much for visiting here today!  Take care and have a great weekend, hugs!!!:-))

  2. What a beauty! I can definitely see the orange in the button and that little calendar is precious :) And yes, thank heavens for air conditioning! LOL! We are suffering through nearly 120 degrees here in AZ.

  3. Wow....beautiful Maria! I love the shape and your stitching and the seam binding woven thru the frame is gorgeous! It's hot here too - so steamy that when I went outside my camera steamed up making it impossible to photograph anything - ditto with the AC! Have a great weekend! :)

  4. Maria, this is pure perfection! I love the shape of the card and the stitchng! Simply deliscious!!

My fave treatment: the way you wove a ribbon through the die cut frame. Beautiful! Thanks for playing with us at THe Cafe. :)
