Color Throw Down




I used Roxie's Sketch Challenge for this card's layout and colors from the Color Throw Down Challenge: Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, & Baja Breeze. BasicGrey's Euphoria pad had some perfect DP for this. The birdie is paper-pieced, some quick oval punches layered for the sentiment and some 2-step stamping of tulips made this what I consider to be a CAS card. It's Wednesday already and May is flying by...no rain today but no sun either. Only 55 degrees and it's noon. :-( Might have to manufacture some rays by making another sunny yellow card - lol!

STAMPS: Terrific Tulips (SU), So Many Messages (Hero Arts) - sentiment, Decorative Birds (Hero Arts)
PAPER: Euphoria (BasicGrey), Melon Mambo, Baja Breeze, White
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Certainly Celery
