Sweet Birthday Wishes

Here is my second card for Week 2 of Summer Card Camp. For some reason I really struggled getting the red on as part of this weeks colors. I think it was because I started using so much of the orange and yellow that I thought the red would look really strange. The red check paper is darker than it looks in the picture. But here it is and I am pleased with the result. This is also one of the rare occasions when I do embossing. Another technique that I need to practice on.

Enough of all that :-) Thanks so much for stopping by!

Here are the colors we are working with this week:

My card using this combo:

Thought for the day:
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
James 1:5-6
