CC359....Happy Birthday


Happy Hump Day Peeps1

Today I am sharing a card I made using the color challenge this week on Splitcoaststampers.
The colors are Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade and Basic Black.
I struggled so much putting this card together, I wasted a bunch of card stock trying to put together something that I felt was pleasing to the eye.
I knew right off I wanted to color some of the pretty flowers from the Stampin Up Bordering on Romance stamp set. I stamped the flower spray onto some confetti cream card stock and colored with my aqua painter and ink pads.  I stamped the flower two more times and colored and cut out and added to the main piece with dimesionals.


The sentiment on here is from the SAB set Elementary Elegance. The card is a  4-1/4" square. The image is matted with a lucky limeade scallop circle and the basic black card stock is embossed with the square lattice EF. I added a small limeade bow and some basic pearls.

Well, hope you like it, even tho it was difficult to get to the end, I am happy with the outcome.
Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
