Color Challenge.... Happy Birthday


Happy Tuesday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the color challenge this week on Splitcoast


Old Olive, Real Red and Calypso Coral, with a dessert option of a flying image, bird, butterfly, Santa.....etc.

I did sneak in some blue for my bird, I did first do it in red, but didn't like it so I switched to some Island Indigo and liked it much better.


I used some Rustic Cream card stock and the DSP is from two different packs, the Tea for Two and the Beau Chateau packs.  I also used some soft Suede card stock. I colored my image with Calypso Coral and Old Olive and then used the Real Red to deepen the shading on the flowers and also on the berries. 
The sentiment is from the retired Something to Celebrate stamp set.
I used some crumb cake ribbon and a vintage ivory button with some twine for my bow.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Vicki
