Color Throwdown

Happy Wednesday everyone! The temperatures are finally going above freezing here in VA and it feels like a much welcomed heat wave! At the time I was making this card on Sunday afternoon, we were without water and heat for 4 hours!  The house got down to 61 degrees even with 2 electric space heaters.  I was not a happy camper! 😩

It's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge and Jodi has chosen a beautiful group of colors: navy, aqua and pink!  Here is my take on it...

Reverse Confetti just had a fabulous release of new products on Monday, so this new Congratulations stamp set with matching Confetti Cuts was what I went to for a needed birthday card.  I'm also playing along with Seize the Birthday Challenge where Anything Goes and with the Fusion Card Challenge where I used only the sketch.  I created my own patterned paper by repeatedly stamping the confetti image using RC's Navy Blue, Magenta and Iced Aqua inks.  The Star Garland and Edge Essentials Confetti Cuts are also Reverse Confetti dies. The sentiment was white embossed using Altenew's Pure White EP.

Our guest star stamper this week is Jenny Hall from Jenny Stamps Up.  Congratulations!

Wanda, your card is gorgeous. I didn't see it on the website so I came here on your blog...don't know if they forgot to post it or if it's me just not being able to see it.
