Happy Birthday, Debbie!

Hello!

My team mate from For Your Inspiration challenge, Debbie Standard, is having a BIG birthday today, she's turning 60!  So I have made a card especially for her.

Happy Birthday, Debbie!
I will admit, that I had to use some inspiration to get to this point, so this is being entered into CASE Study #90 and Dynamic Duos #2.

CASE Study 90 has this beautiful card by Aga as inspiration:
Yep, I used the entire layout. Why mess with something that is already so beautiful?

And I chose the colour scheme from Dynamic Duos, challenge 2:
I don't have So Saffron, so I had to choose between Barely Banana and Daffodil Delight. Because I was using an outline stamp, Daffodil Delight won the toss.

I used PTI Pretty Peonies, Thin Big Favorites #12, and Background Basics: Circles. Stampin' Up Pool Party and Daffodil Delight. Card base is PTI vintage cream.

If you pop over to the rest of the team blogs, you'll see some more birthday cards in honour of Debbie's birthday.



Debbie, I hope you have a wonderful day of celebration filled with love, laughter and happiness.
