Happy Birthday Friend!

Hey Chickies!

Happy Birthday Friend
I’m back today with a card that I’ve made in response to a couple of challenges.  This card satisfies Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 30 and Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch Challenge 74.  Oh how I love to combine challenges into one submission!!

I think I’ve mentioned a time or two that I live in Arizona in the winter.  We have some of the most gorgeous winter sunsets I’ve ever laid eyes on.  So when I saw the color challenge using pink and orange, I immediately thought of the Arizona winter sunsets.  The sun rays in the You’re Dandy clear set from Practicing Creativity worked famously!!  It was so fun to mix the two different colors with the two different sized rays.  The hot air balloons are from the Look Up! set, also from Practicing Creativity.  We almost always see hot air balloons floating off in the distance on those beautiful winter evenings.  If I weren’t so afraid of heights, I be on one of those babies some day.  But for now, that ain’t happenin’!  LOL  I was also inspired by THIS card by Dawn McVey.

That’s it for me today.  I’m meeting up with my high school girlies tonight – can’t wait to see their beautiful faces and have some laughs.  Thanks for stopping by!!
