Bold Birthday Blooms

Hi friends!  The Color Throwdown is celebrating 5 years of color challenges and as a former guest designer (September 2011), I've been invited to help them celebrate today.  There are lots of prizes available for participating in the challenge, so be sure to head on over to The Color Throwdown blog for the full prize list and links to all the participating alumni and guest designers!

The colors this week are bold and bright.  Not my usual palette, but a scrumptious challenge nonetheless. As I've mentioned before July is birthday season in my life.  So many birthdays to celebrate, so I couldn't miss this opportunity to make another card on my list.  This one is for Stacey Schafer who just happens to be celebrating a birthday today and is also this month's guest designer at The Color Throwdown.  Happy birthday, Stacey!


The flower stamps are from the Joyful Blooms set and the sentiment is the Birthday to You Plain Jane.  No patterned paper was harmed in the making of this card.  {grin}  Lots of tone on tone stamping for the backgrounds, then a bit of fussy cutting for the bermuda bay popped up flower.  Some washi tape flags with buttons and a Flourished Trim Die for the botto
m border finish things off.

That's all from me!  Hope you have a spectacular day and find a little time to join in the festivities this week.
