Happy Birthday!

I'm so glad I started playing with the ColourQ challenge a few weeks ago.  The colors are always fantastic.   This week's colors called out to do a halloween card, but I wanted to try something different.  It's been a while since I've used the PTI set for the floral images so off I went.  Happy with the way it turned out.  I always seem to be happier when I make CAS cards.  What about you?  What's your favorite "go to" style?

Really like the sentiment on the side. Thanks for turning me on to the Color Q site....spent a little too much time surfin' over there and now my day is off to a late start (well worth it!).
Forgot to mention in the post below that I love your family pic with the sky-line behind it. Oh, I long to go to Chicago with my BF (we used to go a lot before kids).

Wonderful That set worked great for this card and color combo. The CAS design is perfect. I tend to struggle with CAS but I do like the look.
