Fall Meadow

This week's Color Challenge at SCS is called Cutting the Cherry Calypso Mustard! 

My first thought was, WHAT???

Then I read on.  The colors are Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral and More Mustard.

My next thought was, WHAT??????

My system of using colors is, if it doesn't hurt my eyes, I go with it!

This hurt my eyes!

But I had to give it a try.


I think these colors work after all!

Card Recipe
Stamps: Autumn Days, Itty Bitty Bits, Bring on the Cake
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard, Calypso Coral (Always Artichoke for some stems)
Paper: Naturals White, More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler
Other: Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Corner Rounder Punch

We're off to celebrate our oldest grandson's 12th birthday this evening.

He was born between Hurricanes Dennis and Floyd. He's quite a whirlwind! I can't believe that he's 12.

He loves that he's as tall as I am!

Smiling for the camera is not his favorite thing to do.

Isn't he handsome?

Better go.  We don't want to be late!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Enjoy!

Happy Birthday to your grandson! The kids do love when they grow enough to be taller than one of us grownups, don't they?

Your card is beautiful! I think those warm colors all go well together.
