Happy Birthday in color for Dynamic Duos #100

I'm pretty bummed today.  This is my last card challenge for Dynamic Duos.  Dynamic Duos has decided to end their challenges (sniff, sniff).  They really helped me think outside the box and use colors that I would never have put together.  I will miss entering their challenges every week.  I now have to find another color challenge to participate in.

Dynamic Duos last challenge is to use So Saffron, Pool Party and Smoky Slate.  I love these colors together.  They are so "springy" looking.

I used Stampin' Up's "Pool Party" and Brazzill's yellow and grey textured card stock.  I don't know what their color names are though.  Sorry.  I used water colored paper, too.

I used a water color pen and water colored the inks across the card.  I let it dry, ran the water colored paper through the Cuttlebug with the "Happy Birthday" embossing folder.  To finish off the card, I attached "Pool Party" cording, a small piece of yellow ribbon (sorry, I don't know who made the yellow ribbon, it was in my leftover box), a "Pool Party" button and two flowers from Prima Marketing "Essential Shabby Chic" that I inked with "So Saffron" and "Pool Party".  It's hard to see the "Pool Party" inked flower, which is behind the "So Saffron" flower.

I have to end this post on a "laugh out loud" note though.  I saw this on facebook and just had to share it.  The dog, Cooper, reminds me of my dog, Sebastian.  The video is only 40 seconds long.  Enjoy!
Thank you for stopping by and check out the rest of the beautiful cards posted on Dynamic Duos #100 Challenge this week.
