Birthday Paper Poppies


Hey everyone! We went for an early morning bike ride and well, let's say I'm out of shape! I didn't stop, except for water, so I did pretty good. Afterwards, I got dizzy, so that showed my poor condition. I feel better already!

Before we left, I started on this card. After we got back, I added the sentiment and photographed it to post. I wasn't sure if I wanted to add anything else, so I let it sit for a while and came back to it. I needed a birthday card, so I thought this would be perfect. The colors were inspired by K. Werner's Color Challenge.

Oh, by the way, this was my SECOND try at this challenge. Was it hard for you? I think I'm going to trash the first card! LOL

Well, I'm about to get ready to 'direct' my first photo session with Mac!!! I have been researching a lot of ideas and I hope it goes well! We're photographing a new family. Last year, Mac photographed them getting ready for their wedding. I'll share the photographs with you once he gets them posted.

Have a great weekend!
