Color Challenge.....Happiest Wishes


Happy Tuesday Peeps!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the color challenge this week at Splitcoaststampers.
The colors are some of the retiring colors from Stampin' Up, Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze and River Rock!
Seriously, what are they thinking....LOL!!
Love all three of these colors, but I am sure we will embrace the new colors as well, I must say the upcoming NEW IN COLORS are soooooo pretty!!! Can't wait to get those!

Anyway on to the card, I went with a layout I seem to use alot, simple but pretty.
The DSP you see here is from the Simply Sent Everyday Elegance Kit..
The base of the card is Not Quite Navy and then Baja Breeze and then some whisper white at the top of the next layer, I embossed that with the perfect dot EF.
Then the bottom of this layer is the DSP from the Simply Sent Kit, actually the kit contains cards, I just cut them apart to use the parts I want.


I stamped the roses with baja and not quite navy, the leaves are river rock, I achieved the two tones of river rock by stamping the top stamp several times, re-inking with the river rock each time. 
The sentiment comes from the "Happiest Birthday Wishes" and is stamped with Not Quite Navy Ink onto the whisper white circle.
I added some sticky back silver pearls to the flower centers, the top corners of the card and under the sentiment. 
Thanks for stopping by today!

This is such a beautiful card Vicki, I too love the colors. What stamp set are the roses from, they look familiar, but can't place 'em.
