Belated Birthday Wishes....

Hi Ya!  Today was another absolutely gorgeous day here in Washington!  And so on this beautiful day we headed up to Seattle and the Boeing Museum of Flight.  Our little guy was in HEAVEN because he LOVES cars, trains and airplanes.   The Museum of Flight is a really cool place for big people, too.  They have the only flyable B17 "Flying Fortress" bomber, a Concorde and Air Force One (used by five presidents including Kennedy and Nixon!).  So, after all that I wasn't sure I would be getting anything done today, but I did get a quick little card done for three challenges:  CR84FNthe Paper Players and the SCS CAS challenge.



The color combo over at CR84FN is probably one of my favorites so far:  lavendar, grey & celery green.  I could have made a far more elaborate card using the Paper Players sketch, but I decided to keep the card really simple because I also posted the cards on Splitcoaststampers for this week's CAS challenge to make a belated birthday card.  When I started to make the card I was going to use one of my "go to" sets SU!'s Fast & Fabulous, but then decided that I really needed to try out the PTI anniversary set Botanical Silhouettes so I used that set along with a sentiment from the Waltzingmouse set Fancy Phrases.  As I started putting the card together I realized that turrning the sketch on its side was going to work best for me.  I really love how the card turned out. 

Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  SU! Basic Grey & Certain Celery; PTI white; Stamps:  PTI & Waltzingmouse; Ink:  Ranger Milled Lavendar Distress Ink, SU! Certain Celery, Ancient Page grey; SU! border punch; PTI Lavendar Moon ribbon
