Birthday Blessings - Color Throwdown Challenge #552

Hi everyone, welcome to a new
Color Throwdown Challenge and this week I’m the hostess! If you follow me on IG you know I’m also a knitter so this cake really spoke to me so I chose it as my inspiration piece this week. I hope it will speak to you, too and you’ll play along with us!

I chose to work with Beautiful Bloom Stamp Set and Die-namics from MFT for my card today. I stamped it on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink, cut it out, and colored it with Copic markers then set it aside. I used a Cement Gray card base, added a Sweet Tooth card stock panel for the card front, and popped up Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames cut from Silver Sparkle card stock on foam tape to meet the challenge and add some interest and dimension.

Next I adhered the colored flower, also on foam tape, and the sentiment, from Bitty Birthday Wishes using Rectangle Word Window Die-namics and finished off with some enamel dots.

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD552 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd552 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, including our amazing July Guest Designer, Susie Moore!
