Paint by Numbers Challenge

I am so excited!!! Another challenge from Papertrey Ink was issued today in celebration of their third birthday.  It is a "paint" by numbers challenge of sorts.  A special sketch and color palette  were provided by Papertrey Ink.  Our challenge...create a card using the sketch and all of the colors in our assigned palette. We were allowed to mix the colors in whatever way we wanted but all had to be used.  A challenge for me for sure.  The colors in my palette are definitely out of my comfort zone. I guess that is why they call it a challenge (hehehe)   It took me all morning to come up with an entry for this challenge.  Good thing today is my birthday and I have the whole day to "play" 
THE SKETCH
THE COLOR PALETTE

Here is what I came up with.........
I hope you like it.  Well I am headed out to the grocery store and my local craft store.  More SNOW is on the way and I need a few things if I am going to be snowed in for the rest of the week.  You know important things like toilet paper and scrapbooking adhesive  :)

I love your card. You did a great job with the challenge. We have been having snow, but nothing like you. We had snow over the weekend, today and suppose to get tomorrow. We are still in a winter storm watch until tomorrow. I still think our weatherman is guessing as to what we are going to get. We had patches of black ice today that we had to watch out for.Happy Birthday. Take care

oh! Looks like Joyce let the cat out of the bag: Someone's Birthday? Your's?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Thank you for your kind words on my blog. And the card you made is great, I should follow that pattern--somehow!

A blessing for your birthday:
May the strength of God pilot you.
May the power of God preserve you. May the wisdom of God instruct you. May the hand of God protect you. May the way of God direct you. May the shield of God defend you.
