Quick Birthday Card

Hi all. This has been a lonnnng and rough week here in the Marzec household so I put together this quick (stamping therapy) card for Color Throwdown 197 and Mojo Monday Sketch 246...



I didn't have all of the colors listed on the Color Throwdown blog, so I just got as close as I could. I used Tangerine Tango, Groovy Guava, Kiwi Kiss, and Kraft.  The crochet lace ribbon is wrapped around a piece of old Groovy Guava DP.  The happy birthday sentiment is from Verve's "Big Wish" set and the butterflies were cut with Verve's Flutterby Die.

I hope you all have a nice weekend.

I wish they'd bring groovy guava back - I loved that color! Such a sweet card with all that pretty lace! I hope things are OK on your end - I was just thinking about you today and wondering when we can hook up for another breakfast :)
