GDP145 You Are Wonderful

Happy 4th of July, everyone!  I have a decidedly un-patriotic card today, LOL!  It uses the Global Design Project challenge #145 palette of Grapefruit Grove, Mint Macaron and Fresh Fig:

I also used the Fall-To Layout 78:

I wasn't sure if the black portion on the sketch was actually part of the card, or just a background layer, so I just made my card without it!  So here we go:

I used a piece of Grapefruit Grove DSP on the edge, cutting the corners with a circle punch.  The wreath from Swirly Scribbles thinlets was cut with Mint Macaron, and the flowers from Perennial Birthday (I can't seem to put this set away!) were heat-embossed with Craft White ink and Clear Embossing powder, colored with an aquapainter and reinkers, then fussy-cut:

And sinced I smudge ink on part of the wreath, I added some faceted embellishments.  The sentiment is from Rooted In Nature, and I stamped both elements with some little speckles from the Perennial Birthday set as well:

Thanks for popping in today!  Enjoy it and be blessed!

I noticed a robin flying in and out from under our shed roof and scolding me whenever I put the trash out or wanted to use the hose.  I thought it was a bit unusual, but I checked, and sure enough, she had a nest with three babies in it!  I didn't think they would have a nest this late in the season!

I'm keeping an eye on them so I can see when they fledge!!!  Although as hot as it is, I think I would want to stay under the roof in the shade!!

You did a great job with the sketch and those colors, LeAnne! I love the wide pp border! And I especially loved the photos of the three baby robins ~ thank you for sharing! I was told once that birds keep trying into the summer if something happened to their prior nest/eggs/babies. I love that about birds. Hope you had a great 4th and that things cool off there soon!! Hugs, Darnell
