Happy Birthday

I don't know about you but the colour challenges on SCS have been almost frightening lately....lol I love bright colours but when I read Temp. Turq, Cameo Coral and Ruby Red I almost didn't attempt it. BUT that's why it's called a challenge, right? ;)
I haven't played with my new Verve stamps in a few weeks and I thought the floral image would be pretty coloured in these colours.
I couldn't get Ruby Red cardstock to look good on this card so I opted to try to match my copics to it as best I could. I think it turned out pretty good actually.
The dessert option was to use some ric rac. I think having this pretty ric rac from Sharon's store was what helped me :)
Stamps: Happy Days; Cardstock: White, Temp. Turq, Cameo Coral; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Nesties, Wavy Border Punch, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, Ric Rac, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Wednesday~!

LOL, frightening is a good word to describe the color challenges....they have been really different combos, I agree! You did an awesome job with it here! Love that Verve set with the hibiscus and that wide ric rac is beautiful with it!
