Creative border with a color throwdown...

Today's card is for two challenges.  The first is the Make It Monday #175-Creative Borders and the second one is Color Throwdown #304.

I loved Danielle's Make It Monday card this week.  I have never made a shaped border from die cuts so I had to try it, and I loved the colors for this week's CTD #304-Bermuda Bay, Real Red and Smoky Slate, so wa-la...combined into one card. 

I used Gina K's "Pure Luxury White" card stock and partially cut of the Friendly Flowers from PaperTrey Ink's "Friendly Flower" and "Friendly Flower Add On" die cuts.  I stamped "Happy Birthday" from PTI's "Think Big Favorites #24" and some of the flowers from PTI's "Friendly Flowers" stamp set in Stampin' Up's "Bermuda Bay", "Real Red", and "Smoky Slate" inks.  I also used SU's "Smoky Slate", "Bermuda Bay" and "Real Red" card stocks.

 Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to check out the other beautiful cards for both Make It Monday #175 and Color Throwdown #304.
