PPC-CC #69 - Enjoy the Simple Things in Life (Card)

Another start to another week!!
I think I am going to get a kink in my neck watching these days fly by!!!
Which brings me to share with you another color combo challenge at Picture Perfect Creations #69!!  I think all of us need to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life.  Speaking for myself, as school nears, I am realizing that the kids will be absent from the house a few more hours of the day. While a part of me is looking forward to getting more done around here... a part of me is very sad.  Their little daily quarrels and wants and undivided attention needs are going to be missed.  I have many people in my life that DO enjoy the simple things on a daily basis and are always thinking of others before themselves.  This card is going to one of those very important individuals!!  Sometimes you gotta take the time to THANK those people and let them know how important they are.  I would tell you... but they might read this post.  :-)

Here is my card that I created...


And here is the color combo to use...Crumb Cake, Bravo Burgandy, Blushing Bride & Old Olive.

Beautiful card Michele. I love the bird and the branch he's sitting on. A wonderful sentiment as well, definitely something to strive for in all of our lives. You are so sweet to create this beautiful card to remind someone how important they are.
