Big Birthday Wishes - Color Throwdown Challenge #706

Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Lisa is our hostess this week and she's challenging us to a cool color palette. Hope to see lots of you playing along this week!

To begin, I sponged Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with Broken China Distress ink and Sour Apple dye ink, then cut it using Big Birthday Wishes Die-namics. Next, I created a background using the same inks and Mini Cloud Edges and Drifts and Hills Stencils on a Smooth White card stock base.

Using foam tape, the die cut sentiment was popped up on foam tape and Cutest Clouds Ever Die-namics were added, also using foam tape.

To complete the design, I stamped the balloons from RAM Itching to Tell You Happy Birthday Stamp Set and cut them with the coordinating Die-namics. To carry out the color palette, they were paper pieced with MSTN Pretty in Plaid Patterned Paper and also popped up on foam.

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 #CTD706 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd706 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!
