Dynamic Duos and Paper Players....Birthday Wishes

Happy Halloween Peeps!!

Guess I have been very quite lately, but there is just so much going on and not enough hours in the day.
I probably should have a Halloween card for you today but sadly I don't.
I do have this fall Birthday card to share.

I used a couple of challenges to pull this card together, the first is the color challenge this week on Dynamic Duos Blog:

and also the sketch challenge this week on The Paper Players Blog:

I added some basic black card stock for my neutral. The colors this week made me think of sunflowers, so I pulled out my Blossom Party Die and die cut a couple of flowers with so saffron card stock and then sponged them with more mustard ink.

The DSP on here is from the Howlstooth and Scaringbone pack. I am not wild about this card, but it is OK I guess.
I did get a lot of crafting time yesterday so I will try and have some more posts this week. 

Thanks for stopping by today and

Love this, Vicki!! The flower is gorgeous mounted on that fabulous black doily (who is the doily by?) Love the bits of black trim and way to use the colours and sketch. Great card.
