Good Morning!!! By the time you read this post, I will be away on my vacation, camping. The family is so excited to go camping for the last time this summer. We will go again in the Fall, but it isn't the same. There won't be swimming then and it will be much cooler.

With Fall in mind, I created this card.I made this card using our Daily Bread Designs Happy Birthday set and today's FS133 challenge. I just love Joanne's gallery and this card really popped out at me ( ).

I am not usually an orange person but since hers looked so good, I went out on a limb and tried similar colors. When I was putting it together, I flipped one of the panels which changed the layout. Too late to change after using permanent adhesive. I also changed the image, sentiment, brads, and added sewing and ribbon.

Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- Happy Birthday
Paper: Hauku, Tangerine Tango, Black, White
Accessories: Memory Box brads, Tango ribbon, MS Butterfly punch, glitter, paper piercer, sewing machine, scalloped border punch for corners

Thanks for stopping by! Please leave a comment so I can return the favor and visit your blog when I get back from vacation.
