Birthday Sundaes #17

I'm not really sure I like the card I made this week for Birthday Sundaes. The challenge is to create a birthday card using the colors orange, green and white.  The DT had some great inspiration. I just wasn't sure what to do for this one. It was the colors that got to me!!! I picked up Holiday Cakes cartridge at Hobby Lobby this past Saturday on clearance. No, I don't have a cake machine and never will, but I really wanted this cart. I just had to use something from it to make my card. I flipped through the booklet several times trying to decide what to use. I finally settled for the flower on page 34. The sentiment is from Fiskars-Make a Wish Quotes stamp set. The inside sentiment is a wooden stamp. The punch I used for the white piece is scallop scallop. After I popped the sentiment piece on, I felt it was missing something. To much space on each side that just didn't look right. Buttons worked to fill up these spots. I used some 'memory thread' in the buttons. I think I'm gonna like this stuff. The bg papers except for the white are from Sassafras-Bungle Jungle. Ya'll have until Saturday to link up a card. Don't forget to include birthday wording on the front of your card. Hope ya'll like mine!!! :)

I know I am kind of late commenting this card but I needed to let you know I really like it! Love that BG paper!
It was a real challenge for me too to make something out of those colors, although I really like how they look together, but you know how is it when you just don´t know how to follow directions (lol)
Anyway, love your card and love to see you playing with us every week at Birthday Sundaes.
Hugs,
Vivi
