Color Challenge....Happy Birthday

Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!!

Today is week two of my guest designer gig over at Splitcoaststampers Color Challenges!!

I am super excited to be a guest designer this month!! Today's colors are Kraft, Red and Yellow.
I choose to use Stampin Up's Crumb Cake, Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight. I also used the fun Stampin Up  Hostess set called Array of Sunshine. This has to be my favorite Hostess set, so far!!! :)

I stamped the flowers with Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight several times on scrap whisper white and then cut out and layered them up. If you follow the color challenges at all on Splitcoast you know that they generally have a desert option with the challenge and this week the desert is "leaves" and yes the challenge hostess said they could be green. I decided to use the little leaves die to make my leaves and I also ran them trough the big shot with the square lattice Embossing Folder.

I also used the Square Lattice Embossing Folder on the Crumb Cake piece layer after the base.
I layered the flowers and leaves on a piece of whisper white. I added a piece of poppy parade that I had  punched with my scallop edge punch. The sentiment is from the Hostess set called Happiest Birthday Wishes. I cut a top note die with some daffodil delight and cut off an end piece, then stamped the sentiment and added it under the main image panel. I then used some bakers twine to wrap around and make a tiny bow. I added some buttons and silver pearls for my embellishments. 

Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
