Birthday Blooms: GDP037 - Colour Challenge hadn't really had much time to compose my thoughts this week so I turned to a Challenge for inspiration.  I thought these colours were an interesting mix.

I stamped the Birthday Blooms image in Mint Macaron Ink onto Mint Macaron cardstock and watercoloured it, using my usual technique, with Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Island Indigo.

I stamped the greeting in Island Indigo ink.

The ribbons and framelit are retiring but I'm happy to say Birthday Blooms will be available for the next year at least.

I used the largest of the Ovals Collection framelits (retiring) to cut the scalloped oval shape from the whisper White cardstock (I used that on another card that I'll share later) and glued the panel down to a square of Island Indigo cardstock.  

I then added the White Jute ribbon and Island Indigo cotton ribbon (both retiring) and then glued the panel onto the 6" square Tip Top Taupe card.

Thanks for visiting.
'Til next time
