I'm running a little late to the Unity Friends With Flair party today. I had a morning full of errands and then had lunch with a dear friend who's back in town for the weekend. In between I squeezed in this card:
I have a ton of birthdays to recognize in March and my birthday card supply is running low, so this will be a welcome addition to my stash! I used two Unity stamps: Bitty Happy Birthday and the Iron Orchid Designs co-brand Tattered Roses.
My colors and design were inspired by this week's Chiclectic Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger photo:
There's a lot going on here, right? But I just LOVE hot pink and orange together and wanted to give this a try. I incorporated the photo's main colors in my design, minus the gilded tones--that was just too much. I also picked up the vintageness of the toile design in the pillow shams and on the wall paper with my tattered roses focal point, as well as the black and white diamonds of the bedspread with my background paper (a free digi paper that I downloaded from the now-defunct Angel Company several years ago).
I based my layout on the sketch for this week's Ribbon Carousel Challenge:
My kids have next week off from school for February Vacation, and my husband has Monday off for Presidents' Day. We don't have any big plans except to relax and have fun! My kids and I are starting to plan some adventures for next week. I've had a request that we visit nearby Rockport and that we hit the used book store. And I know that they both want to work on their scrapbooks (which reminds me, I've got to get some photos ordered for them to work with!) We're all looking forward to the break. :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful! The colors, stamps, and patterns look great together.
