Color Hues Challenge #48

Happy 2nd Birthday to the Color Hues!

We hope that you join us for a special celebration!

 We have asked the ladies over at our sister challenge Seize the Birthday to make a birthday card using the same Hues of Color.  The bigger the party the better, wouldn't you say?  

So the change to this challenge is to not only use the Colors below but also to Make a Birthday card to help us CELEBRATE! 

After you link up a card for this challenge make sure you head on over to Seize the Birthday and Link up with them as well!  This challenge and their challenge will be like any other, as each Challenge blog will pick its own Winners! 

I love it when I can make two cards instead of one using the same supplies!

I used the My Favorite Things Big Happy Birthday cover die to create two birthday cards. To use both of the colours I cut one in navy and one in lime green. I inlaid the opposite colour pieces into the cover die cut. I ended up cutting three more BIG in each colour and glued them together before gluing on the cover plate for some added dimension. I also cut the word WISHES from Sizixx gold opulent paper for the bottom line of both cards. I finished it off with a cupcake from My Favorite Things All the Cupcakes stamp set coloured with Copic markers to match the card.

A closer look:




Please head over to the Color Hues blog to see what my fabulous teammates have designed for the challenge!

Thanks for stopping in today!

Great design to show off the two colors and the birthday wishes couldn't be any bigger or more festive. Sweet.

I've looked and looked at this die set, and passed on it every time. Definitely a big mistake! I love it when you get two cards at once, and both of these are fabulous! That cupcake is the perfect finishing touch.

Super, eye-catching cards. Great that you get 2 for the price of one ;o)

What a way to end the line-up with a big bold punch! I was tickled to bits when I saw both of these. What a great design in this color combo! I could not love them any more! Well done!

Awesome cards, Tracey! I love the color swap, the gold and even the cupcake! Somehow, it looks like the perfect use for these two colors - so much that I wouldn't have been surprised if you had made the cards and then chosen the colors!! :D They really look great.
