Celebrating a Fall Birthday

It felt good today to use fall colors. The weather has been so warm that I am looking forward to fall. That is one really nice thing about living in the Mid-West. We have four very different seasons. This cute squirrel is from Clear Dollar Stamps it is part of a set Squirrel Chatter. I just love the sentiment. How cute is that! I love pun sentiments. They make me smile. =) The layout for this card is from Sunday Sketch Challenge. At Birthday Sundaes they wanted to see a birthday card with the sentiment on the front of the card.
At Come & Get It challenge they wanted to see a fall birthday card. Corrosive Challenge wants to see earth tones. Card Makin' Mamas are looking for a birthday project also. Finally, over at Stampin' B's they wanted to see a birthday card with piercing. I have not done that before although I love seeing it on everyone else's projects. You can see my first attempt was very simple. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you had a great weekend and enjoy your week!
