Birthday Wishes

Good morning! Here is the card I'd like to share with you today: a combination of this week's Play Date Cafe Color Challenge and CASE Study Challenge.

Here is the color story for PDCC #94:

Such rich colors together - makes me think of fall! Oh how I love fall.

The CASE Study challenge this week was a fun one, too. Instead of CASEing a designer, we had the opportunity to case each other. I perused the galleries and chose this card from Monika Davis (from Challenge #48) as my inspiration:

And here is the card I created, using yummies from WPlus9:

I combined images from Very Vintage Greetings and Flora & Fauna I. I am loving, loving, loving these stamps.

Have a super day, sweets!
