Aunt Sally and Color Cue

Happy Friday!
I am headed north to spend the weekend with my nephews. Pretty excited about being Aunt Sally for a few days. the highlight, or potential disaster, just depends on how you look at it and what happens, is the 4 year-old T-ball team trip to a Braves game. Not sure if I am excited or terrified. Either way, I am sure I will have  a a great visit. On to the latest card...

This is a triple whammy. First, I wanted to participate in the current Wplus9 Design Studio Color Cue challenge. Then I used the Card Patterns Sketch #61 and followed the Creative Belli challenge to use something from my stash to create a birthday themed card.  Well, I had to tweak the colors a little to use what I had in my stash, but I held to the color families. To meet the Creative Belli challenge, I used the brilliance ink that has sat in my drawer forEVER, pulled out the pearls and not gems, and dug through my wrapping paper drawer for the tissue paper.
But, wait. That is not all folks. I even finished the inside of the card. Banners are all the rage so I added one to the inside. I woke up thinking about what to say in the sentiment and "Put on your party dress. We're Celebrating!" won the battle in my semi-slumber state. Off to do some work before I hit the road to Atlanta. Wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest creation. I'd love to hear from you so leave a comment or ask a question.
