PPA#42 Color Challenge Birthday Card
Here's my take on the PPA#42 Color Challenge to use Old Olive, Real Red and Tempting Turquoise at PPA here.
I used a sketch from the January Stampin' Success ( a magazine we Stampin' UP! demos get each month).
I started with a Tempting Turquoise card stock base and added a strip of Turquoise DSP from the Pink Flamingo DSP. I stamped the image from Birthday Bliss in Basic Black on Whisper White card stock. I then paper-pieced the cake in the three colors. "Happy birthday" from Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped in Old Olive on Old Olive card stock and a Silver brad was added to that piece. A few staples and the 3/4 inch Real Red polka-dot grosgrain ribbon finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Birthday Bliss and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Papers: Whisper white, Old Olive, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and Pink Flamingo DSP
Inks: Basic Black
Accessories: silver brad, staples, 3/4 inch Real Red polka-dot grosgrain
