Happy Birthday Candles - Color Throwdown Challenge #653


Hey there and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Miss Broni is our hostess this week and she has some bright and summery colors for us to work with so I hope you'll join us!

I thought these bright colors would look good on a black background and I was right--they just pop!! I'm using the just-released Celebrate You card kit from MFT for this card--I am in love with that darling little banner!!

First up, I created the banner cut from Smooth White card stock using Poppin' Pink, Candied Yam, Butterscotch, and Sour Apple dye inks and strung them on some baker's twine with foam tape. At first I was going to stamp the candles but then remembered Stripe Splash Patterned Paper and it was a no-brainer! The candles were cut from colors coordinating with my ink choices and the flames from Butterscotch card stock.

I'm using Sweet Tooth card stock for the card base and Black Licorice card stock stock for the card front. Before adhering the card front to the base with foam tape, I heat embossed the sentiment from Celebrate You Stamp Set, then once it was adhered I added the banner, also on foam tape. The candles were adhered at the bottom, some directly and some up on foam tape, as well.

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 #CTD653 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd653 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there!
