Heck Yes! It's Your Birthday! - Color Throwdown Challenge #649


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Vickie is out hostess and she's chosen some gorgeous bold gem stone colors for us to work with. Hope you play along with us!

I never fail to love how Balloon Bundle Stamp Set and Die-namics turn out no matter what colors or card design I use them on. It's just HAPPY!! So, to begin, I stamped the image on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored it with Copic markers.

Next I stamped Happy Birthday Background on Sweet Tooth card stock using Cement Gray die ink, then a sentiment from Anything-But-Basic Birthday Wishes was over stamped on the background using Extreme Black hybrid ink. 

It was then adhered on foam to a Sweet Tooth card stock base edged with Black & White Stripes Patterned Paper. Once the colored image was popped up on foam tape it was done!

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 #CTD649 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd649 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!
