Now, for the colors!!
Sitting on my desk is an invitation for my oldest kiddo to attend a Luau theme birthday party this weekend. When I saw these colors, a TROPICAL theme got stuck in my noggin and this is what I came up with:
Now somehow, my "Regal Rose" took a brighter pinkish-rose tone. I think my subconscious took over on the tropical theme, hehe!! I kept this a pretty CAS card as I think I will use it for the 13 y/o girl's b-day card (YIKES!! It looks like the mixed teen parties are about to begin!!). The base is a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2 " piece of Gina K's pure luxury cardstock. There is a slightly smaller layer of SU's Baja Breeze that has the same ink sponged along the edges. Another scrap piece of the pure luxury was run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and sponged over with Baja Breeze ink. I then stamped the Large Cherry Blossom from Just for Fun® onto some scrap pieces of the pure luxury paper with Ranger's Archival Jet Black ink. The flowers were then colored with my Copic Ciaos and cut out. The leaves were cut free hand from SU's Certainly Celery and then I took the certainly celery ink pad directly to the paper to add some subtle depth of color. Both the flowers and leaves were then spritzed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Pearl. The leaves were taped to the card base, leaving the edges loose. Two of the three flowers were adhered using dimensionals to add some more depth. I then stamped the Happy Birthday (also from Just for Fun®....sorry, I cannot find the direct link at this time!!) onto a scrap piece of the pure luxury (have I ever mentioned how much I LOOOVE this paper?!!) and cut out the "flag" and sponged along the edges with the Baja Breeze ink.
I played around with adding some more baddabling, but just couldn't get anything to tickle my fancy, so decided to call 'er done! (now you know the real reason this is a CAS card!! haha!)
