Color Throwdown Inspiration

Over at the Color Throwdown they are celebrating their 100th challenge! I have been following this challenge blog for some time and I think I might have entered once or twice, but I do know that each week I've been inspired by the color choices and the DT's cards. This week I made a point to be sure to participate...





As I hopped along all the DT and Guest DT blogs today I noticed a theme: Basic Grey patterned paper. When I sat down to do my own card I turned to my own small BG stash, and behold! the Euphoria paper instantly caught my eye. Going with this as my base I decided to pull out one of my DRS Designs stamps. I'm always in need for birthday cards, July being no exception!

Thanks for stopping by and hopefully you might consider taking the challenge too.

DETAILS:
Paper - Solid (Stash), Patterned (Basic Grey Euphoria)
Stamp - Celebrate Cake Silhouette (DRS Designs), Ink (Colorbox Chalk Ink)
Embellishments - Chipboard Flower (Making Memories), Border Punch (Fiskers), Ribbon (Martha Stewart)
Techniques - Fussy Cutting, Sewing
