Happy Birthday!

This is a great color combination that took me a few tries to get it the way I envisioned.  I wanted to participate in the Embellish Magazine Circles Color Trends Challenge and hopefully I interpreted the colors correctly as the one color didn't look like red but more a deep coral color.

I also played along with CAS-ual Friday this week to use ribbon tab or loop.  I think I used some ribbon tab loops :-) with the Fall To Layout sketch for the week.



 It's not too often I get to play in some of my favorite challenges in time, I'm always playing WAY after the challenge has ended.  I'm so excited to have gotten to play a bit this weekend and create a bunch of cards.  I spent yesterday (my vacation day which I was sick for) catching up on a lot of blogging.  

Hope your hump day is going well!
