Happy Birthday

Happy Sunday! I hope this post finds you well and having an awesome weekend. We're dodging rain again today. It's been so rainy and horrible this summer! I guess I shouldn't complain:our garden is looking beautiful!
Today, I'm sharing a birthday card I made for my Mother In Law.
One of her favorite colors is yellow, so I incorporated it into the color scheme. It's not my favorite color to work with, really. I don't know why I dislike yellow,  I prefer dark gold and mustard shades.  I used the sketch from this week's Mojo Monday sketch:
card stock-Papertrey Ink
patterned papers-Authentique (Be (you) tiful collection)
            butterflies-Glitz Design
large yellow sunburst sequin-my stash
velvet button-Jolee's
seam binding-Hug Snug
twine-Americacn Crafts
label die-Spellbinders

I would like to take a moment and thank everyone for their recent visits and sweet comments! It's been a busy week here! I like to respond to your comments personally by email, but some of you are "no reply bloggers" meaning,  you have not chosen to link an email to your Blogger account. If that's by design, no worries, but I would like you to know that I read every comment and am honored and flattered by them!
If you would like to link an email to Blogger, I found a tutorial here that explains it very clearly.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by to visit!
