Hiding in My Craft Room has a new challenge today

Today is the beginning of a brand new challenge at
That means a new theme too, of course.  This week we would love to see your creations for:

A woman's birthday

Remember that you're not limited to just cards!  Show off your new layout or maybe a cake topper...oooh, a party banner would be great to see.  You can check out all of the challenge guidelines here.  There aren't many rules but we do ask that you look over them and abide by them so that everyone has a fun time!

Now, for my card this week....which is my first for the Hiding in My Craft Room Design Team.  (Still so excited to be joining this lovely group of talented ladies!)

The super cute image I used is from Lacy Heather's work!  Her name is Maggie Springtime.  I've decided to go with more autumnal colors.  Yes, they are unusual for autumnal colors but I'm an unusual kinda' gal.  When I was a florist, I was always drawn to the combo of oranges and purples/maroons especially this time of year.

The flowers Maggie is holding are actually much more maroon than the picture shows.  As are the tiny mulberry flowers I've used.  The color just really fought me in these photos.

The items used for this card were:

*Papers - Papertrey Ink, Bazzill, DCWV
Sentiment - Papertrey Ink
Ink - Memento Tuxedo black
Beads - Michaels
Charm and ribbon - my stash

Here's a side view to show a little dimension:

The entire Design Team at HIMCR is really looking forward to all of the great projects that will be shared this week!  Good luck to all entrants.....hope to see you there.
