I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend, filled with crafty goodness. I have been pretty busy, but I managed to get some time to myself and catch up on a few cards, and bible journaling pages. My daughter had things to do, and and it was chilly outside, so that made perfect conditions to stay in my craft room.
Since today is Sunday, there is a new Pile It On challenge posted. This week's theme is Birthday. We are sponsored by Craftin' Desert Divas this week, and the prize they're offering is 4 bags of CDD sequins. Who doesn't love sequins?! Here is the card I made for this weeks challenge.
I really dig how this card turned out. At first I wasn't too sure about the flourish, but as I look at it now, I like it. I was hoping to create somewhat of a sunset over the beach kind of background, and think it turned out pretty close. It's almost like looking out of a window, now that I think about it. Either way, I love it, and will be sending this to a dear friend who lives on the West Coast. I hope she likes it.
I'm going to enter this for the following challenges.
Virginia's View #18: Geometric Patterns
Happy Little Stampers CAS September Challenge: Colouring (I hope coloring with water colors counts)
Sunday Stamps #109: Inspiration Photo (Teal, Yellows, Orange & White)
Addicted To Stamps #161: Anything Goes
Freshly Made Sketches #203: Sketch (My interpretation)
Card Concept #39: Inspiration Photo (I was inspired by the colors)
Pals Paper Arts #267: Crushed Curry, Pool Party & Tangerine Tango (I tried to get as close as I could, with what I had)

That's all for me today. I'm off to spend time in my craft room again, and hopefully get more stuff done. I hope you'll head over to see what my friends have created for you over at the PIO blog. As usual, they're all pretty awesome.
Stay crafty my friends!
