~ Birthday Shaker ~

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog. Well after my marathon kitchen adventure on Tuesday, I am catching up on DT administrative stuff and household chores. And, after this Blog post I am heading off to my craft room for some creative time.
We are also taking my middle grandson out to dinner tonight. Just a little celebration before he returns to school for the fall. It seems like we just were starting summer break and now it's back to school time.
Our preschool term starts September 9. So I still have 20+ days to get my summer list completed.  It doesn't seem as though I got too far on my list. So I don't know what happened there. maybe not enough effort and concentration applied to get it completed (lol).
I can't cry over spilled milk so let's move onto a happy subject with my card for today. this one I created for the color challenge #646 on Splitcoaststampers. Karen was our hostess and she chose powder pink, sweet sugarplums and mint macaron for her color palette.
powder pink, sweet sugarplum, mint macaron
Optional was to use pearls. I used enamel dots because of the type of card I made and its for a little girl so pearls didn't work for me.
This was also entered in the DTGD challenges that Splitcoaststampers was running. You have to be a fan club member to participate. Here is the link to the challenge that I entered. Rebecca was the hostess for this one.

 My background sweet sugarplum designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up petal garden collection. I layered that onto sweet sugarplum cardstock and my card base is mint macaron.

The image panel is a birthday die from PTI. I layered a panel of powder pink behind to hold the sequins. Embellished this panel with enamel dots in the sweet sugarplum & mint macaron shades. The twine is sweet sugarplum.

My heart balloon is from the balloons variety die from CottageCutz. Stamped happy birthday in sweet sugarplum and my card is finished. That's it for me for this post. So until next time..........God bless.
