May Your Birthday Be As Special As You Are


Hello & welcome! I'm dropping by with a card that I made for my friend's upcoming birthday. This one is being entered in three challenges-CR84FN60 Color ChallengeMojo Monday #253 and Tuesday Alchemy #26-Bingo. The main challenge colors for CR84FN60 are grape, blue & green with white as my neutral of choice. My sketch inspiration is from the Mojo Monday sketch by Julee, Verve owner & designer. The third challenge was a Bingo from Tuesday Alchemy and I chose to work with the first vertical row of Ribbon or Bow, Glitter, and Dies or Punches. Here are the inspiration photos from the three challenges.

 

 

 


My background dp is grape and I incorporated grape in the handmade wild rose I made. In an earlier post I shared how I made these roses and a link to the tutorial that I used. Green comes into play with my polka dot dp base, Lime Green Stickles glitter and green cs I used to die cut my Verve leaves. All of the panels were die cut from Spellbinders Nestabilities dies and my small rose is also a die cut from MFT. I added some pizzazz with a polka dot ribbon from Taylored Expressions and it completed the requirements for the Tuesday Alchemy-Bingo challenge. Loved playing along with all the challenges and the sketch is definitely going to be seen again. :D The challenge colors were a bit daunting at first but once I chose my paper it sorta flowed from there. The blue seems to anchor this card and I certainly hope my friend likes it. Here's a close up of the roses and glittery leaves.




Thanks for stopping by and hope everyone is having a terrific weekend. The weather here is gorgeous so we're off to enjoy a boat ride on the lake. I'll be back with more handmade flowers soon. :) 
Hugs,
Lisa

Nicely done L1, the colors (cough, PURPLE, cough) are GORGEOUS and the bling on the leaves. The sketch is definitely perfect for this card layout.
