Birthday Celebration!!!

Funny how things work out...or don't. I started my card this afternoon and needed something fairly simple because
I am desperately needing to get ready to go out of state Friday a.m. Well, you would know things would go
wrong. I thought I had my card finished, went to choir practice, came home  and the card just didn't look like I wanted. Drat! I made the complete card over. Hubby is in bed and I'm uploading and commenting tonight.

The Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #114 challenge this week is given by Cindy Haffner and is  a color challenge: Aqua, Brown, Yellow. I almost never use yellow and this is the second one today I've uploaded with yellow. And, I like both! Of course, I love polka dots, too.

My card also fits the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #45-Use Polka Dots  I just bought this pretty paper over the weekend and I'm sure glad I did.

I'm also entering a new challenge for me: KB Cute Monday #10-Birthday Theme

Easter Blessings to everyone!

Like you, I never thought I liked yellow until I started making cards with it. Now I reach for that color as often as purple! This looks wonderful with those colorful polka dot triangles! I love the candle border done in blue, what a great contrast!
Wishing you and yours a blessed Easter :)
