It's Your Birthday...

Merry Monday's Christmas Challenge is changing it up a bit...this week we are celebrating LeAnne Pugliese's birthday.       
                       Happy Birthday LeAnne!!! 

I understand it is a milestone birthday for her!  It is a pleasure to make a card for her.  She always leaves such wonderful comments when we participate in MM Challenges.  She is well deserving of all the card she receives this week!  How fun is this! 

I am also combining this challenge with CTD #303 and Anything Goes for Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.  This week's Color Throwdown challenge is to use Cool Carribean, Garden Green, Poppy Parade and Lucky Limeade.  Woohoo...3 challenges for one card!  I love it when that happens.

Stampin' Up's "Garden Green is the base for this card.  I used Momento's "Tuxedo Black" ink on Gina K's "Pure Luxury White" card stock with a stamp from PaperTrey Ink's "Doodlie Do" stamp set.  I used a scrap piece of typing paper to mask off the middle where I die cut out "Happy Birthday" from Penny Black's "Celebration" creative dies with SU's "Poppy Parade" card stock.  I used 4 Copic markers close to the CTD colors for the week and colored in the flowers.  They were BG15, G43, R27 and YG45.  I finished off the card with a few sequins. 

Thanks for stopping by and  you still have time to make a card for each of these challenges.  Enjoy your Sunday.   I and a few friends are heading over to Novi tomorrow to enjoy Heirloom Productions Rubber Stamp and Paper Arts Festival.  It should be a fun day!
