Sweet Birthday Wishes

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.
Well it's almost time to head back to Preschool. I was in my classroom today cleaning and organizing for our year which starts on September 10. I will go back on Thursday to get my bulletin board put together.
We have our welcome night on Thursday, September 5. Our first class on September 10 is only 1 hour and parents stay with their kids. We have circle time, a story and a craft. The hour goes so quickly but it introduces the 3 year old kiddos to their classroom and teachers. We may or may not have criers on the 2nd day of school when no parents stay (LOL).
Now let's move onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #754 on Splitcoaststampers. I am the hostess and I chose gorgeous grape, lovely lipstick and coastal cabana for my color trio. Optional was to make a birthday card.

For the card layout, I used the sketch from this week's Paper Players #456.
My mouse with cupcake image is fa new die from CottageCutz. I sponged the ears with lovely lipstick after I worked most of it off the sponge. I wanted it to look pink.

Background designer paper is from a watercolor pack I found at Hobby Lobby. The striped designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up "how sweet it is" collection.

The sentiment is from an MFT set. I finished off my card by scattering a few gorgeous grape enamel dots.
Well, that's it for me for this post. Time to dim the lights in Charmed Life land for another day. So until next time...…...God bless.
