Birthday Hugs

Hey folks :)
Gonna post super fast today. It's 9am here and LOTS to do!

I figured out that orange or anything shade that comes close to it is the bane of my crafting existence! This card must have changes about 5 times before I decided to "settle".
I am always up for a challenge but when my eyes start to bug and nerves start to rise... my brain tells me "slowly back away from the table....close the light and this night NEVER happened." Is this the end of orange in my life? Nah....but it's nice to vent to people that actually know what I'm talking about :)

Anyway, I did try to combine for a few challenges...
