Happy Birthday

Hi everyone.  Sorry I haven't been posting weekly as I should be.  But I'm trying to get back with a few challenges to help me keep posting and stamping.  I have been stamping right along.  I've had some orders I've had to fill.  One of the cards I made today is not only for someone's birthday, but also for the Color Throwdown #329.  The colors for the challenge were red, purple, aqua and green.  I started with Stampin' Up's "Elegant Eggplant" card stock as my base and then used PaperTrey Ink's "Tipped Tops Dies" to cut out out the polka dots designer paper (I don't remember who the manufacturer is).  I also used these dies to cut out the borders of the Tipped Tops die in SU's "Certain Celery" and "Pool Party" card stocks.  I used the happy die from PTI's "Tipped Tops dies set and cut out happy and also use one of the birthday dies out of PTI's "Birthday Die Trio" set in SU's "Real Red" card stock and adhered them with pop dots.  I then used SU's Flower Patch stamp set and stamped the flower in SU's "Real Red" ink and the center part of the flower in SU's "Elegant Eggplant".  I also attached the flower with pop dots.  I did use my clear "Wink of Stella" on the flower for a little pop of glitter.

I really wasn't sure how these four colors would come together, but they did make a fun birthday card.  Thank you so much for stopping by.
