PPA #262 – Birthday Bloom

I’m back with another Pals Color Challenge.  These colors offer such a soft and pretty presentation.


I wasn’t sure how I was going to use the Tip Top Taupe with the other two colors but since it is more of a neutral it was just worked using it as the card base.

The DSP background paper is from the Pretty Petals stack and always seems to provide the right print of so many of my projects.  The centerpiece is the beautiful Blended Bloom, which I have definitely not used enough.  This flower is really fun to color and blend.  I used the Pool Party Stamp Pad and a blender pen to color the flower and used my Daffodil Delight marker for the flower stamens.  Here is an upclose of the flower.

The background is from the go to Gorgeous Grunge Set.  The front and inside sentiment is from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set.  I used the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits to cut the front sentiment.  I have not really embraced Project Life for scrapbooking, however, the products are so versatile and can be used in so many other ways.  The new Dotted Lace in Tip Top Taupe is a really pretty accent to make this a very feminine birthday card.
