ColourQ Challenge #134 - Happy Birthday

I got a chance to play along with the current CoulorQ Challenge this week! I have to say, it took me a while to get this card to come together, but I'm glad I stuck with it because I'm so happy with the results. Here is the color palette photo:


I translated the color scheme into PTI Scarlet Jewel, Melon Berry, Orange Zest, Hawaiian Shores and Stampers Select White. The leaves and branches are from Lovely Leaves, stamped in Melon Berry and then colored with Copics (R01, R02, R05). I stamped the striped panel with Faux Ribbon and added the scallop edge using the heart border die.


The Happy Birthday is from Think Big Favorites, and I added the three little gemstones after custom coloring them with a Copic to match the Hawaiian Shores elements.

Thanks for the challenge, ColourQ! The orange and aqua are very "comfort zone" colors for me, but mixing them with burgundy and coral definitely forced me out of my comfy-colors-rut! :)

And thanks for stopping by!
