Color Combos Galore Inspiration Board

Hi!

**If you're looking for my Wilson Designs Release Post Frame project click here**

I was really inspired by a sight that is totally new to me and apparently I have been under a rock because it's not a new inspiration board sight.  I have had it marked to make time to create something with these beautiful colors and theme. The photo can be seen below!
I was immediately inspired by the flowers in the photograph, so I used some gorgeous papers from My Mind's Eye Market Street that had a beautiful floral pattern.

I started the card as mentioned by pulling a collection of papers from My Mind's Eye.  I stamped my sentiment from Wilson Designs Everything's Owlright on Kraft card stock and cut into a banner. Die cutting a scalloped circle in some pink patterned paper, I nested a vanilla circular die cut on top of that and placed to the left of my sentiment banner. I paper pieced a cupcake from Wilson Designs Strawberry Lemonade garnishing with a strawberry also from that collection.
To complete this card, the lower panel was dressed up with some sweet buttons and twine! 

I found inspiration for this birthday card from: Color Combos Galore: Focus on Theme
Aren't those colors so pretty!!!

I hope you enjoyed this little birthday card! 

I have not had a chance to share, but this card made The Shabby Tea Room Winner last week! I was so excited and honored! 
I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
~Tammy~
