Color Hues #13 - YELLOW & BLUE

Hello friends.  I'm playing along with the current Color Hues Challenge today and they are looking for cards with YELLOW & BLUE.


And here's what I came up with...


I started with a embossed background I found in my unused box that I had inked up the inside of the embossing folder (Altenew's Beautiful Bergenia) with Salty Ocean DOX ink before running through my Big Shot, and then used a smaller rectangle die to cut out the center of the panel to create a frame.  Next I stamped and die cut a couple of the flowers using my yellow inks (and a tiny bit of green for the leaves...just couldn't do them in blues, so hope that's ok?!) and The Greetery's Lovely Blossoms stamp set, and then inserted them inside the embossed frame.  


My sentiment is a new die from Gina K's newest kit called Forever Flowers, and to finish I added Distress Glitter (gosh I love, LOVE that stuff!!) and a few sequins also from Gina K.  Lots of dimension and sparkle and shine on this birthday card and I'm loving the YELLOW & BLUE color combo!!

Check out all the beautiful cards from the DT and then play along right HERE ... this challenge is open till 9:00AM on the 14th.  

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
