Happy Birthday - MFT Color Challenge #162


Hi all, I'm back with the latest 
MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here's this week's color combo: Lemon Chiffon, Limelight, Fire Coral, and Eiffel Tower. All of the details about the color challenge are available on the MFT Blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

Every time I read the name "Fire Coral" I just smile--I love that name! And also the color--it is gorgeous! To begin this card, I sponged some Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with Lemon Chiffon, Limelight, and Fire Coral dye inks, then cut it out with Happy Birthday Script Die-namics.

To create my background I stamped Happy Birthday Background on Sweet Tooth card stock with Eiffel Tower dye ink, then adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base.

To create my shaker element, I cut A2 Rectangle Frames Die-namics from Eiffel Tower card stock, adhered clear acetate card stock on the back, and used foam tape for the dam. To make it possible to adhere it to the card front. I left off about 1" of the foam tape on one side, adhered the rest, and poured the seed beads through that 1" opening. 

After plugging the opening up with a 1" piece of foam tape it was done! To complete my design, I simply adhered the sponged die cut to the front. 

And there you have it! Now it’s YOUR turn to play! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 in MFT voucher. Winners are chosen at random, so everyone has a chance!
