Color Throwdown #434

It's Wednesday and that means there's a new challenge on the Color Throwdown blog! I had a request from a coworker for a St. Patrick's Day birthday card, so this is what I came up with. 

I went with a metallic gold in the cording and sequins and found some scraps of these two green patterned papers that I thought would work.  The cupcake was paper pieced and Crystal Ice Stickles were added to the icing.  The shamrock is a digi stamp from a free set that Julee has been offering this month in the Verve store - printed and colored with Copics (YG23, YG25).

Here's what else I used:
STAMPS: Small Packages (Verve).
PAPER: Shamrock patterned paper by Recollections
DIES: Lacy Scallop Circles Confetti Cuts by Reverse Confetti.

Congratulations to Sandy Mathis from Stamp With Sandy - our guest star stamper this week!  Be sure to stop by her blog and say hello!
