Celebrate Today - (CTD392)

Hi there!  It's time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.
For my card, I used the Papertrey Ink Make it Market Mini Kit: Color Pop to create a birthday card or I guess it could be used for other occasions.  The colors in these photos are a little off for some reason but I used a piece of soft stone gray cardstock and die cut the oval opening.  I adhered the die cut soft stone piece over a piece of the designer paper that comes with the kit and used a die cut stitched oval frame around the opening.  I die cut the sentiment using the die that also comes with the kit and sponged on some pacific point and adhered it with glue to the center of the frame.  Then I stenciled, stamped and die cut the flowers and leaves and added them around the edge of the oval, popping up the lower small flower with foam tape.  Along the bottom of the soft stone piece, I added a row of white scallop and an embossed strip of marina mist.  To finish off my card I added three blue sequins to the centers of the flowers and three iridescent sequins within the oval frame.
For more inspiration, check out the design teams' blog links below OR you can go to the Color Throwdown blog for details on how to play along and you can see all the sample entries in one location.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
