Peddler's Pack Rose Stamp Birthday Card! Thank you Cheery Lynn for having these challenges to inspire us!  Very much appreciated!

My color combinations may not have been the best! Or maybe the harsh edge;  not really happy with how this turned out  but can't take any more time!  :(  Time to pick berries!   Thanks for looking!  Have a great weekend!

Happy Birthday

Happy Monday!
A great long weekend but a busy one!   Lots happening!  But I had to take a bit of time to make a birthday card for a birthday mid week.  So my friend inspired me to join in the JustRite challenge!  I love this set from JustRite!  This week's challenge was to use negative space;  JustRite Friday Challenge #126 - Don't Be So Negative!

When I first decided to do this challenge,  the first  die;  memory box Flutter Vine. # 98334; came to mind.    I had seen someone else use it with the negative space idea.  Sorry I don't have the link/credit!  The shimmer sheets also was hanging there trying to inspire! 

I couldn't find a shade of pink or yellow paper right off, without digging into the boxes of paper, so I decided to stamp the background! 

Colored the images with my fabulous Viva paper soft-color and Brilliance Thyme and purple inks that are from Nika's art store in Windsor NS.
 Quick job!

 The background wasn't stamped to perfection by no means!  Always in a hurry! 

The Elizabeth Craft shimmer sheetz ss-0107 green iris was embossed after die cut.

I also would like to enter in the cheery Lynn challenge; "anything goes".

Thanks for looking! Have a great week everyone!  Best of Luck!

 (I hope "Bertha"  comes with no wind and light rain!!!.....)
