Picture Perfect Creations # 64 - A little LOVE card for my Hubby.

If you are looking for the LMCH 45 Mini Album post with Blog Candy ... GO HERE.

Happy 4th of July to All in the States... and Happy belated Canada Day to all my Canadian friends!!  I hope this means that everyone is enjoying a longer weekend!!!
It's Monday... and time for another wonderful color combo challenge at PPC crafty challenges.  I really like this combo.. and would have never put it together myself.  After I played around with it.. .I ended up loving it!!  It's perfect for a little card I gave my Husband this morning as he ventured off to work.  YES on a Holiday!!!  He also has a bum shoulder... so I am hoping it put a smile on his face a little. 

And Here is my creation...



Here is the color combo... perfect for a guy, if I do say so myself!!




I used  The Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 124 from Karen over at The Sweetest Thing where I will also be entering my card for her weekly challenge.  She has wonderful sketches ALWAYS... and I don't often get to play... so glad I get to this week!!




So before you head out today for your BBQ or Picnic and all of your 4th of July festivities... come on over and see all of us and the wonderful DT creations over at PPC.  Hope you get a chance to mix these colors up yourself and enter our challenge!!

Happy 4th girlie! What a fun card!! I agree Linda her hubby is going to love it. There is nothing like a good cup of java to life the spirits. Love the texture behind your image and your bow is outstanding..wish I could make them like you. I totally thought boy colors too! Loved your inspiration with these colors...ditto about rockin them out.
