Polka Dot Paradise Color Challenge

I love the challenges on the new website Embellish Magazine!! This is the 2nd one I've completed although I haven't posted the first one as it was submitted for their publication call. You have until the 27th to join!

This was a fairly simple card for me, I kept the layout pretty simple along with my image. Believe it or not, I broke out some eyelets for it!

Card details:
Stamp Set: Delightful & Delicious by Verve stamps, Print Pattern Background by SU!
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Apricot Appeal, Very Vanilla, Bravo Burgundy
Inks: Bravo Burgundy, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Earth Elements Eyelets

Okay, I just re-read the directions (would help had I done that the first time) and it calls for the above colors & a polka dot pattern. Back to square one on it then :-)





We spent the weekend celebrating in birthday mode. Friday was my birthday and I enjoyed it by stamping a bit. Saturday we celebrated my oldest son's birthday which actually is on Wednesday but we had to work around a few schedules to make it work. All he wanted was to have a friend over and go to the skate park...for his 10th birthday, how could I argue. I got him the coolest cake (looks just like his skateboard, with wheels that spun) which I will share as well. He had a good time, which was the most important part and I'm still in shock he is turning 10 already!
