Splitcoast Color Challenge #282 Birthday Bliss

I had fun creating this card for the Splitcoast Color Challenge #282 here. The colors are Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red and Early Espresso.
I started with a base of Early Espresso. I used the Riding Hood Red polka-dot papers from Love Letter DSP and layered a piece of Riding Hood Red behind that. I stamped the image from Birthday Bliss in Early Espresso and used Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red and Blushing Bride Classic Stamp pad and blender pens to color in the cakes. I then punched that out with the 1 3/4 inch circle punch. I used the Circles #2 Sizzix die to cut out the Blushing Bride circle and the 2 3/8 inch Scallop circle punch for the Early Espresso piece. That's popped up with Stampin dimensionals. "Happy Birthday" from On Your Birthday was stamped in Early Espresso, punched with the Word Window punch and layered onto a piece of Early Espresso punched with the Modern Label punch. A piece of 1/8 inch Early Espresso taffeta ribbon finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Birthday Bliss and On Your Birthday
Papers: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red, Love Letter DSP
Inks: Early Espresso, Blushing Bride and Riding Hood Red
Accessories: 2 3/8 inch Scallop circle punch, Circles #2 Sizzix die, 1 3/4 inch circle punch, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, Stampin dimensionals
