Happy Birthday To A Wonderful Friend! {CTD335}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown!  This week we are up to CTD335, and Vickie has challenged us to use red, light green and light yellow!


I immediately thought, “flowers” when I saw this color combo!  One of my favorite flowers are gerbera daisies, so that is what I created on my card!  I used the Gerbera Daisy Die-namics to create the daisies and I cut them from Lemon Chiffon Prestige Card Stock and Cherry Crisp Prestige Card Stock.  The centers were cut from Hot Fudge Card Stock.  I used Sour Apple Card Stock for the leaves, and they were cut with the Royal Leaves Die-namics.


The sentiment panel was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and I stamped the sentiment from LJD Pretty Poppies using Hot Fudge Premium Dye Ink.  The main panel of Cherry Crisp Prestige Card Stock and Natural Card Stock were cut with Blueprints 13 Die-namics, and I stamped the Natural Card Stock panel using the Houndstooth Background and Natural Premium Dye Ink.  I added a trio of enamel dots to finish off the front.


On the inside, I cut another panel of Cherry Crisp Prestige Card Stock and Natural Card Stock using Blueprints 13 Die-namics.  I stamped the Cherry Crisp Prestige Card Stock panel using the Houndstooth Background and Cherry Crisp Premium Dye Ink, and then trimmed it down.  I stamped a sentiment from Birthday Greetings using Hot Fudge Premium Dye Ink.
