Happy Purrthday - Birthday Before ’n Afters - CTD547

Hello, hello! It’s time for this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge. This week we have the colors yellow, orange, hot pink and green to create with, perfect for creating those summer birthday cards.
 For my card, I used the new Lawn Fawn Birthday Before ’n Afters stamp set along with the coordinating dies to create a birthday card for someone special who loves cats. I used the Magic Picture Changer and Magic Picture Changer Add-On dies with the cake image from the Birthday Before ’n Afters set. I stamped and masked both cake images and blended on some tumbled glass and lucky clover distress oxide ink. I used some Doodlebug Design Dot Stripe Rainbow paper along with some yellow Spring Fling paper. I die cut the green paper using the Grassy Hillside Borders die and blended on some lucky clover oxide ink along the edges. Next I used the Simple Wavy Banners die and die cut it from white card stock and stamped my sentiment from the Meow You Doin’ set. I stamped several of the cat images from the Meow You Doin’ set and colored them with Copic markers, then die cut them out using the Meow You Doin’ dies. After that I used the new Say What Pets stamp set and dies for the smallest cat and speech bubble. For the balloons, I used the Party Animal stamp set and dies.

Lynn, I love your card designs! You've done a wonderful job with the challenge colors - in fact, I think one of the things that really draws my eye to your designs is how well you present vivid color. The WOW factor comes through each and every time. I have been really studying certain designs, from CAS to layered and color is always a factor. Have a wonderful rest of your week!
