Colour Me... Subtle!

Welcome to this week's challenge at Colour Me...! This week we are going with some simply serene and subtle colours :) Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Sky & Pistachio Pudding!

I made this card for a very special little boy who just happens to be celebrating his birthday 1 day before mine :) His mother reached out on Facebook because Colin was not very excited about his upcoming birthday because due to his disabilities, social skills are difficult for him and he felt that no one would want to help him celebrate. 

His page (that he still knows nothing about!) now has over 2 million likes and his parents have been receiving thousands of birthday cards and gifts in the mail to him so far. So very moving to see how many truly wonderful people there are out there wanting to come together to help make this little guys 11th birthday one he will never forget!

If you would like to send a card to this little guy you can post it to: Colin @ PO box 756, Richland, MI 49083-0756.

Now onto the challenge...!
