Color Throwdown

It's that time again...another awesome color combo - coral, yellow, green and white - is on board for the Color Throwdown Challenge! It's also that time of the year when my age bumps up another notch - otherwise known as my birthday! I'll be heading out to work this afternoon so celebrating will have to happen another day!  🎂

Back to my card...I was tempted to go with florals, but this new butterfly cover plate die by PTI was calling my name!  I smooshed distress inks (Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Abandoned Coral, Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron) on Ranger watercolor CS for the background.  I added Ken Oliver's Stick It adhesive paper to the back of some white CS prior to die cutting with my Big Shot.  Wow, does that step ever make it easy to adhere a large and fairly intricate die to a card!  

I then struggled with how I was going to add a sentiment, but white embossing on a vellum "belly band" came to the rescue.
