Color Hues - Orange & Slate Grey

 Hello friends.  I have a birthday card I made for the Color Hues Challenge - Orange & Slate Gray.

I used Spellbinders Club Blooms dies for my flowers and leaves.  I cut the flowers from ivory cardstock and blended Pumpkin Pie ink in the centers before layering them together.  I cut the leaf sprigs from SU Basic Gray and the other leaves from SU Gray Granite.  Happy Birthday is cut from Gray Granite and layered on a die cut ivory shadow using Memory Box Happy Birthday Posh Script.  The striped Pumpkin Pie paper is an old piece I had in my stash and I embossed it with the new SU Cross Hatch EF but it doesn't show up very well on the pattern paper.  I mounted it to an ivory card base and then mounted the flowers with foam tape.  I glued the leaves under the blooms and then glued the sentiment on the bottom.  I really like the way it turned out.

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

Happy Stamping,
