Birthday Card for Color Hues

 Hello friends.  This is my second post today and I made a card using the new Color Hues Challenge colors of Lt. Pink and Gold.


I die cut gold stripe paper from SU Gold Silver DSP (ret.) using a SU Scalloped Contours die (ret.) and added it to the card base.  The lt. pink flowers were cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs Floral 7.  I shaped the 3 layers with my fingers, glued them together and added a gold gem (Hobby Lobby) to the centers.  The open leaves were cut from gold foil paper using a die from SU Cottage Rose set.  The sentiment panel was die cut with a SU Ornate Layers Die (ret.) and gold embossed with a sentiment from SU Happy Thoughts (also ret.); I love the font in this stamp and use it quite often.  I mounted the sentiment panel with foam tape and glued the flowers and leaves on opposite corners.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
