Relax...It's Your Birthday!

Hello again dear friends.  I have been busy this week with school and sewing for my friend's quilt shop so this is the first card I have made all week.  I missed it and it felt good to make one!

Today I have a card for the challenge over at Mo's Challenge Blog.  This week they want us to use out favorite color combo.  Now, that's a hard one.  Favorite for what?  For me?  My house?  My girls?  My boys?  Since one of my boys has a birthday tomorrow I used his favorite combo of blue and green.  I used Mo's great image, Buds
Isn't he adorable?  I LOVE Mo's images.  I have sooooo many!  I refuse to count, I don't want to admit how many I have!  lol  And she has these new baby fairies....OMG!  They will be in my collection very, very soon!!  Anyway, this little guy is so cute.  I colored his hair like my Seth, a little brown, a little red, a little orange, a little blond.  :)  He's adorable too, I think  :)  I used my Prismacolor pencils, of course.  Who knew I would love to color so much at my age?  Goes to show you just never know!

You can't see the DP very well.  I didn't realize my image was so big.  That is a large dog though, isn't it?  It's ok.  Seth loves all the layers and details in my cards.  I hope he likes this one too.  I used the sketch from Papertake.  They always have great sketches!  The burlap, buttons and blue colors were all inspired by different challenges (just check the bottom of my post for the details).
Here's the inside.  You can see the great paper in here.  I didn't cover it up this time  :)  lol

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Mo's Digital Pencil - Favorite Color Combo
Divas by Design - Buttons and/or Bows
Cute Card Thursday - Animal Magic
Papertake - Sketch
Paper Sundaes - Let's Get Cute  (I think this image is VERY cute!)
Digi Tuesday - Blue
Shopping Our Stash - Something that starts with "B" (I used blue, boy, buttons and burlap!) The buttons and burlap were from my stash!
City Crafter - Burlap

I think that's about it, I am off to color my hair, but not with pencils!  :)  lol  Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with another card!  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs
