Wonderful Birthday - PDCC #181

Hello friends!  Today I have a card to share with you that I made for the brand new color story at The Play Date Cafe!  I just love the apricot and peach together though I think the blue I used may be a touch too bright!  :)
I started off with an apricot card base and added a background of patterned paper tied with some natural twine.  I stamped a birthday sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps onto a canvas tag and finished the card with a chipboard flower spray and a pretty brad.  I just love the rustic feel of this card!

I've scheduled this post in advance as well as several others as my husband and I are on our way to Hawaii for a little "babymoon"!  We are staying at the same resort where we stayed for our honeymoon in 2007 so it is neat to bring it full circle.  I still can't believe we are going to have a baby in September. Someday I will share more of our story on this blog because it has been a rough road to parenthood for us and we feels so blessed to be going through all of this!  Just a hint for now - I'm 42 years old (will be 43 when the babe arrives in September) and was given a "less than 5% chance of success" with interventions let alone the natural way (which is how it happened for us.)  As you can imagine, we were a bit surprised and are very excited to meet our little girl in a few months!  :)

Thanks so much for visiting today and remember to link up by Tuesday for a chance to win a prize from our fabulous sponsor!  Please see the PDCC blog for more details!
