CTD199 - Ahoy!

Well hello there and a belated Happy Fourth of July!  I'm late with posting my card for the this week's Color Throwdown Challenge because we lost our power during some storms that we had on Tuesday.  I hope all of you enjoyed the holiday!  Lori is our hostess for this week's challenge and she's chosen some perfect colors for the Fourth of July holiday.

For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Tremendous Treats Birthday and Mat Stack 3 with coordinating die.  After seeing Lori's inspiration photo and colors I went with the PTI banner dies and pirate image from the Tremendous Treats set hoping to give my card a fun nautical look.  I started out with a crumb cake card base, added an embossed night of navy panel and stamped my Mat Stack three die cut in night of navy.  Then I added a strip of tempting turquoise, some bakers twine and my banners along the bottom.  I die cut a white circle and navy mat, stamped my image and colored it with Copic markers then popped it up with foam tape.  To finish off my card I stamped my happy birthday sentiment in real red on a die cut banner and added buttons.
