Day 174 Just Peachy 365 Days Card Challenge

When I read today's challenge on the 365 Cards blog I knew I wanted to participate. I quick assembled this card and I'm also going to teach this same card in the two Vintage Card Classes I'm teaching at both Anchor Papers (Plymouth and St. Paul) in September. The card is made on Stardreams pale peach paper from Anchor Paper and the designer paper is from Graphic 45. The pearls are from Memory Box and my friend Jan gave me the peach vintage button I glued onto the distressed paper flower. The birds and the stripes are all peach. Peach was surely my color theme on the card. I love soft pastels colors and hope you will enjoy it too. Most people that see my cards always say they look so much better in real life. Inside sentiment: happy birthday in a pinky peachy distress ink (Tim Holtz). Have a great day my friends and for those of you that don't know I'm a Friday guest blogger on the Memory Box blog. Click on the upper right icon on my blog if you want to see my card I posted today. It is pouring in MN. I think I will go out for coffee now at Caribou or Starbucks or Dunn Brothers or should I go to McDonalds or to one of many gas stations? If I was smart I'd stay home and brew my own Starbucks or Green Mountain. Hmmmm...What's a girl to do. I can't sleep so I might as well get some coffee and continue stamping. I want to go shopping today really bad. Thanks for stopping by and I'm sorry my card did not scan too well. I think its time for a new printer/scanner. Have a terrific day. TGIF!! Tami =)

What a beautiful scrappy card Tami. I hope that you were able to buy some new Copics today and have some coffee.

We had a Tornado warning tonight but fortunately we ended up with only severe thunderstorms. It is still very humid here. Maybe our fall will be lots better right?
