Birthday & Balloons

Hello Blogger Friends. Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.
Another Sunday that we had to watch church service from our home. I am so thankful for technology that allows this to take place. Our Pastor had a good sermon so that always starts my day off right.
Then I had to make a trip to the grocery store to pick up some food. I went to Trader Joe's. Since it's a smaller store only so many people can go in at a time. You have to wait in line for entrance and also wear a mask. They sanitize the carts as they are giving one to you. So it makes you feel safe. I also take my own disinfectant wipes.
I went at a good time because the line was very short. So I was in and out in no time at all. When I left the line to get in was fairly long. But, I am good for another 10 days or so.
Anyway, enough of the pandemic stuff let's move onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #779 on Splitcoaststampers. Barbara was our hostess and she chose granny apple green, terracotta tile, coastal cabana.

I kept my birthday card on the simple side. I used a bold birthday greeting that was cut in black foil paper. It's a die from CottageCutz - "festive birthday greetings".

My balloons are cut in terracotta tile cardstock. The background designer paper is from Stampin'-Up - part of the "follow your art" collection. And, to cover the granny apple green color, I used a couple of enamel dots. And, that's it for me for this post. So until next time.....God bless.
