Birthday Girl

Two cards today – wow! It’s not often I get a chance to do two cards in one day. I love participating in challenges and I always take a look at the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge (SSSC67). I also love trying to incorporate a color challenge and today was able to make the Scrapmaster’s Paradise Color Combo Challenge (SPCC46) work. Sometimes I’m amazed at what color combos these creative geniuses come up with – Pixie Pink, Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip? I wasn’t sure how I was going to put this together. I kept looking at the sketch and wondered what kind of image I was going to stamp. I pretty much always use flowers, but decided to look through my stash of patterned paper scraps for some kind of inspiration. Lo and behold, I found this cute paper that is bright pink and has a touch of brown in it. Perfect! I thought I’d keep the card pretty simple. The card base is Flourishes Cream and the patterned paper (from a scrapbook calendar) was layered with Chocolate Chip. The two horizontal panels are Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip. I had already made the flower combo a few weeks ago, so that was easy just to stick on. The sentiment is a rub on from SU’s Chit Chat package. There is no stamping on this card at all! Thanks for having a look.
