Golden Birthday Wishes

Howdy, peeps!  How's your Wednesday going?

I had planned to make a card yesterday for today's blog post, but I didn't get to it because I was working on baby books.  Hoping to finish those up in the next week or two, but this morning the first item on my agenda was to make a card for today.  Luckily I had help from The Color Throwdown:

I used Basic Black, Whisper White, Lost Lagoon, and Watermelon Wonder for my colors, and put them together with the hot-off-the-presses Freshly Made Sketch 201:

A few gold touches and my card was done.  I kept it pretty simple.  And now I can go back to working on baby books...or maybe I should to Thursday's card first?  Hmm.

Have a great day, peeps!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Crazy About You, Petite Pairs
Ink:  Watermelon Wonder, Versamark
Paper:  Lost Lagoon, Watermelon Wonder, Basic Black, Whisper White, Kaleidoscope DSP (retired), Brushed Gold cardstock (retired)
