Colorful Birthday!

Heart 2 Heart had a color challenge to throw our way this month!  The colors included:  Desert Sand, Cranberry, Lagoon, and Goldrush.

I struggled with what I wanted to do with this challenge.  Then I got in a time crunch to get a card ready and this is what came of it!  Sometimes time restraints can make decisions for me and that is what happened here.

I looked at the stamp from Pick a Posy and started stamping a background in the 4 colors.  I backed it with Cranberry.  The sentiment is from Joyful Birthday.  I added a few of the dark Aqua Dots and Lagoon Baker's Twine and a card is born!

I hadn't used that stamp set, but I think I like this stamp as a background!  I'll probably return to this for another piece!

Speaking of time crunches……off to work!  Thanks for stopping by my blog!


  1. I love it, Katrina. I don't have this stamp set, but love the way you overlapped it to create the background. Will have to look around for similar stamps and give it a try!

  2. I really like how you created your background, Katrina, what a great idea for a colour challenge! The distressed background for your sentiment is really great too! Thanks for playing along with us at H2H!
