For my card, I used the My Favorite Things stamp sets Pretty Posies and Label Maker Sentiments along with a MFT Hello die and designer paper. I started out with a white card base then die cut a smaller stitched panel of white cardstock adding that to my card base with foam tape. Then I cut a strip of yellow striped designer paper and adhered that down the middle and added a horizontal strip of tropical teal cardstock across the top portion of my card. I die cut two of the Hello out of black cardstock and glued them together and adhered that across the top of the strip of teal then added three watercolored roses with leaves tucking the top rose underneath the strip of teal cardstock. I then added the stamped Friend sentiment along the bottom and glued on three silver sequins.

Hi there, crafty friends! It's time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!
I'm using the fun My Favorite Things Celebrate with Cake stamp set again (I'm loving this set for birthday cards and so much more) and made another birthday card. I used some orange Doodlebug Designs paper for my background, then created a shadowbox affect by die cutting a scalloped frame, one from white cardstock and another from fun foam and glued them together. Next I used the die cut rectangle from my scalloped frame and used some spiced marmalade distress ink and sponged on some color. Then I die cut the cake, cake stand, flowers w/leaves and candles and stamped them. For the layers of cake, I inked them up with hibiscus burst ink and then just along the top of each cake layer I dabbed them into raspberry fizz ink for an ombre effect. Once all of my pieces were stamped, I adhered them into the window of my frame and added my sentiment banner and tiny pearls to the centers of the flowers.
