KW Color Inspriation #47 - Happy Birthday Card (TECC 61)


Happy Friday Everyone,

Are you doing a little TGIF dance? Cause that's what we are doing over here! Look at these yummy colors that Kristina has picked out for her 47th Color Inspiration Challenge! Thispicture is from her friend Adrienne

The colors for this week are Chocolate Chip,Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron and Whisper 
White. I love these colors together - they just feel so rich and yummy - how can it not be yummy with such titles like: chocolate chip, pumpkin pie and so saffron! I really enjoyed making this card it was a lot of fun.

I used Taylor's awesome sketch challenge from her Friday Cupcake Challenge  #61 for inspiration. I flipped the sketch 90 degrees counter clockwise. I also used her newest stamp release set Branching Out. I think this might be one of my fave sets - its just so versatile. I needed to make a Happy Birthday card for someone special.

I love the Basic Grey Ambrosia set of papers ... and used one of the DP to stamp the tree onto and then paper pieced little orange leaves onto the tree for a little contrast. I had fun putting buttons and also Taylor's Tiny Twinkles on the eyes of the owl and on the scalloped edge. 


Here is a side ways view of the card:


Card Details:
Paper: Ambrosia (Basic Grey), Brown metallic cardstock, Orange carstock from trash
Ink: Pumpkin Pie from Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Taylored Expressions: Branching Out stamp set and Branching Out coordinate set
Accessories: Random ribbon, liquid perls, stickles, foam dimensionals, buttons from stas, Taylor's Tiny Twinkles n the scalloped edges and the little owl eyes, corner rounder




I hope you get a chance to play in both challenges! AND you can win a free set of Taylor's Tiny Twinkles - all you have to do is upload your card with Taylor's sketch to Paper Craft Planet with the keyword with the sketch name: TECC61 and your card could be chosen randomly to win these awesome tiny little blingy blings!!! 

Thanks so much for visiting my little corner!!!
Hope all of you are having a wonderful Friday and are doing the Friday happy dance!
Ciao for now,
Sankari :)
