Happy Birthday! {CTD389}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Vickie has challenged us to use pink,orange and green!  LOVE this color combo!


I have been thinking about this darling MSTN Happy Pandas set for a few days, and I knew I wanted to use it on my card today! I cut him and his balloon out of X-Press It Blending Card using the MSTN Happy Pandas Die-namics and stamped them using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I colored them with Copic Markers and then added Cool Diamond Glitter to the balloon using a Quickie Glue Pen.

The main panel is Sweet Tooth Card Stock cut with Blueprints 13 Die-namics. I used my Zig Clean Color Markers to create the watercolored background, and I added a strip of patterned paper from the Dots & Stripes Neutral Paper Pack.  I then added a strip of silver glitter tape down the side using the 6m Glitter Decorative Tape.  I popped up the panda and his balloon with Jody Boosters and then finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.



Check out what the Color Throwdown Team has created today!
