IC230, CC278, F4A10 Birthday Wishes

Happy Saturday!!!

Guess what....Jerry and I went to see Tim McGraw in concert tonight... it was totally awesome!!! It was Tim McGraw's birthday tonight....wahooo!!! We all sung him *Happy Birthday* and in return he delivered a fabulous open air concert!!! The weather was perfect and we had a fun, fun time!!! Definitely a night to remember!!!

It's way after midnight and I'm still energized...since everyone is sleeping I escaped to my stamp room :) and checked out some SCS Challenges!!! When I saw that me sweet blogger friend Carol was the *Queen for the Day* - QFTD07 over on SCS I couldn't help but to play!!! Unfortunately Carol is taking a break from blogging/stamping right now, but I know this special challenge in her honor will brighten up her day!!!

I chose to case this beautiful card from Carol's gallery. The only things I changed are the colors, size and the Stamp Set.

Here is my take on it....


This Stamp Set is from Stampin' Up and it's called Watercolor Trio. The layout fits this weeks CC278, the flower theme works with the F4A10 and the fabulous colors are from this weeks CTD90 - using Barely Banana, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Pale Plum. Of course I had to combined it all with this weeks IC230 ~ Jazz it Up. This *Jardin Boehme* coaster set fit the CTD90 colors perfectly and I ran with that idea!!! The card itself is straight forward and I hope you like it :) !?!?

Have a fabulous weekend and thank you for stopping by!!! Hugs ~S~

Thanks for CASE-ING a card from my gallery my friend. That's such an honor for me, and you've created such a gorgeous card too! I love the beautiful floral images and soft colors! The addition of your signature silver beads is the perfect finishing touch.
I'm so glad you enjoyed Tim's concert. That man sure is easy on the eyes isn't he? :)
I'm on the mend from hip replacement surgery, so hopefully one day soon I'll get back into the full swing of stamping again!
Have a great weekend (((Hugs))))

This card is absolutely beautiful and the moment I saw it, I knew I needed to create it! I used it for one of my card making events and just posted a very similar version on my blog along with a link to your blog (which I'm new to!). Thanks for the inspiration...I will now be closely following your blog...I see some amazing things here!!
