~Waltzingmouse Sketch and the Q~

My husband's birthday is coming up.

I ordered this sentiment awhile ago, because it TOUCHED MY HEART when I first read it.

AWWWW, right?

I used two fun borders from Heirloom Patterns.

The colors are from the

Hubby LOVES ORANGE...so I made sure there were lots of orangy pops.

I only had slivers of the green~enough to cut the top and bottom of the tag for a stacked feel.

The wee bittiest bit of pink (my husband already has three girls and a froufrou doggy... gotta take it easy ya know). ;)

The poppy is in the flower and highlight.

Simon Says Stamp and Show:What Do You Say?
