It's your day

Hello everyone , welcome to my room . Hope that you had just the perfect weekend .
I wish Summer would return to Adelaide as I am fully over this cool spell. Doug and I went for a short walk with the gopher this morning  but dare not go far in case it rained . Still he enjoyed the outing anyway.
 After he returned to the rehab centre tonight I managed a quick card .
I had the colours in mind and the layout before I began , it just took a while to match the sentiment with the image .
The card base is of SU Crumb Cake .Front is covered with dsp with a Tempting Turquoise centre panel. I placed white and green strips on both sides. I punched a scallop circle in white card and adhered to panel. The hat stamped on Certainly Celery card in Old Olive ink has been 3D on scallop circle and I paper pieced the hat band in Rose Red card . Then added flower ribbon  under that.

 The sentiment is from SU set, On Your Birthday.
Loved this from start to finish , hope you like it too.
                                                    I don't think of all the misery but of
                                                        the beauty that still remains.
                                                                       --  Anne Frank 
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne
