simple birthday

Hey there! I hope you're all having a wonderful week! Mine is going pretty good so far. Looking forward to a great weekend, so let the countdown begin. :)

This week is my week to choose the colors and inspiration photo over at Color Throwdown. I went with this gorgeous cake as my inspiration:

Isn't it lovely? I just love pretty cakes..and I really like the funky design on this one. I made a birthday card for my cousin..hope she likes it. I went with simple (of course) and I found that I really like the geometric design on the stamp (it's from Rosie Posie by Papertrey). Here is my card:

You know, that satin Early Espresso ribbon from Stampin Up really is one of my favorite ribbons ever! It's so delicious looking! 

Well, thanks for stopping by! Be sure and see what everyone else has done this week!

who's counting?

Hi there! Thanks for stopping in. Today is Wednesday, which means it's time for another Color Throwdown challenge! This week's challenge is brought to us by Kerri! Here are this week's colors:

Don't you just love that picture? The wallpaper looks amazing. I'd love to hang out in that room for a while! I decided to go with a simple card this week. Ok, so I HAD to use some patterned it's still a very simple card. Here ya go:

I thought all of the random numbers on the patterned paper went perfectly with the sentiment! I added a few pearls on the white to give it a little pop and I was done. Oh, I also embossed the sentiment in white so it stands out a little more. 

Well, that's it for me today. Be sure and stop in and see what the other ladies have done with this combo!
