Hello everyone! Happy Friday to you! It is going to be a gorgeous day here in Minnesota. Forecast is mid-80s... Yes, 80s in MN! I didn't even know that happened. :) Since it's Friday, that means there's a new challenge over at TGIF. Here is our summer-ish color combo that had me a little stumped at first!
When I first saw this color combo, I was a little worried. I do love the two blues together (they are my blog colors) but the yellow was throwing me off! The first thing I thought was that the colors would make a fun kid or guy card. I do have a few guy birthdays this month in our family so I wanted to make some birthday cards. This also is the set I'm leaning towards for my Stamps in the Mail class, so I wanted to try a few cards out with Endless Birthday Wishes.
I love this Pool Party Glitter Ribbon.
I added some of my favorite accessory at the moment - the It's My Party Enamel Dots. I also added some Crushed Curry ink around the cake using the ink pad and Aqua Painter.
For this card, I pulled the ribbon apart so that I would have some strands to tuck behind the cake. I originally had more white space but thought the card needed something. I added the Happy Birthday sentiment and some Island Indigo splatter.
For the swirls and dots I used the Memories in the Making (swirl) and Wondrous Wreath (dots). Shannon Lane used the dots a few weeks ago on this card and I loved the idea!
So there you have it! I hope that you join us this week for this fun color combo! Can't wait to see what you come up with! I also am entering my white card in Just Add Ink's sketch challenge this week! (Maybe you could combine both challenges too!)
