Best Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone!!! How have you all been? This past month as been crazy for your little family! Lots of birthday parties, bicycle races (my husband's passion to put it mildly :o), garage sales, and so on! So needless to say, I have not had much time to stamp! Bummer I know!!! Well I am trying to get back into the swing of things...so here is my first attempt.... a card for Kristina Werner's 54th Color Inspiration Challenge! What fantastic colors!!!

I started with whisper white card stock and then ran it part of it through my Sizzix machine with the Cuttlebug Argyle embossing folder. I added a strip of pumpkin pie cs with stampin' dimensionals that I faux stitched with the mat pack, paper piercing tool, and the white gel pen. I then punched a 1 3/4", 1 3/8", and 1" circle in taken with teal, green galore, and soft sky (a retired in color). I added a pumpkin pie button with white embroidery thread for a finishing touch. I attached each of these with dimensionals too! Then I stamped the saying from the Short and Sweet stamp set with pumpkin pie ink!
I have several other fun things I can't wait to share with you this week!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
