Fill this day with joy!

Hey there! Hope your weekend is going well. Most of our weekend was spent nursing sick kids, but I did get a chance to go out for dinner last night with some dear friends! Yummy food and great company - bliss! Anyhow, I snuck away to the studio this morning to make yet another card for the color/birthday challenge at Embellish Magazine. I wasn't completely happy with the last card I made, so wanted to try again. This color combo has been difficult for me. Still not over the moon for this card, but not ashamed of it either. I used this week's fall-to-layout #79 from Clean & Simple as my starting point. The focal image is the balloons from PTI's Everyday Button Bits. I used some more of my handstamped striped paper (I told you I wouldn't be stopping anytime soon!) Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Stamps: PTI Everyday Button Bits, Polka Dot Basics II; CTMH Boutique Borders, Circle Around
Cardstock: CTMH Hollyhock, Chocolate; PTI Rustic Cream
Inks: CTMH Chocolate, Hollyhock, Topiary, Outdoor Denim
Accessories: CTMH Craft Buttons
