Color Inspiration #54

Happy Friday! It feels like the weekend to me since today was the first day of summer vacation for me and husband also took the day off. We enjoyed a movie and late lunch and then I got to play around in my office! Here's my take on Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge #54. I started with a 4.25" square card base - I did distress the edges a bit. I ripped some card stock circles and folded them all up to make some rumply flowers and used the same process to make the leaves. I added some teal dots with a Copic marker - kind of reminded me of the orchid I saw at Home Depot today. A little button, ribbon and a happy birthday sentiment and there you have it.

Thanks for dropping by! :-)
