Happy Birthday to you!



Hi everyone! I made this card following Dawn's latest color challenge . The colors are so autumnal and gorgeous together. I really enjoyed this challenge and I wished that I had PTI's First Fruits set to use that wheat image, that would have been perfect!



I used Background Basics: Retro, Autumn Abundance and Damask Designs for the sentiment.



Thanks for coming by! I appreciate your visit!
