BC #63 -- Color Combo


I'm not completely comfortable with the new In Colors....yet!....so, this was just a bit difficult for me this week. We were to use Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, and Pacific Point...WOW! These sure are bright together....and bright cards always seem cheerful...and cheerful somehow always screams BIRTHDAY!! So, of course, that's just what I made....a birthday card.


Now, don't get me wrong, I really do like each of the colors that are new for this SU year, but sometimes it takes awhile to warm up to, and get used to the new colors....I was just getting used to some of those that just retired!!


Anyway, here's what I came up with. Thanks for stopping by....see you as we visit the other Bloggers!
Stamps: WOW Flowers
Inks: Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango
CS: Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White
Misc: Round Metal-Edge Tag, Cropadile (to make hole for crystal brad), Red/Orange Crystal Brad (from Fire Collection), Scallop Punch, Wide Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Coluzzel, Dimensionals
NOTE: I used the Old Olive ribbon again...sometimes it works, but sometimes it doesn't. The Kiwi Kiss ribbon is on my Wish List....just haven't bought it yet....BUT, do not worry, I will!!
