playing along with 2 challenges today:
(1) CTD or Color Throwdown #486 using blush, pink, and peach color combo
AHB 4 or Always Happy Birthday...month 4...April's anything goes birthday with option of balloons (for this 1st link up I've chosen not to do the balloons)
and the main card area's layout is based on this sketch:
a. the sketch image shown above was shared in the Facebook group "100 Pattern Papers"
b. I altered the card in width; used stenciled crowns in place of the top rows of scallops; used flamingo pattern paper in place of the gray horizontal section with cording added; used graph grid index card with stenciled "hb" in place of black horizontal section and sentiment ribbon; used a stenciled birthday cake instead of the flower and with the size dropped below I opted to not use any of the ribbon tail sections on the bottom third
c. pink with white dots pattern paper is from Colorbok
d. flamingo pattern and light peach striped pattern designer papers are from The Paper Studio
e. different values of pink and peach/orange were used to help meet the required color combo for CTD 486
f. overall I like the quirky fresh light feel of this birthday card! winner winner flamingo dinner! Ha-ha!!
