I played along at the Color Throwdown and The Paper Players for today's card.  These two were both first times for me, but definitely won't be the last!  I combined the fun colour combo and great sketch for a bright card!


I had to dig into my old stash to find some Pink Passion CS.  Thankfully there was some... in a house full of girls, you would think someone would have used it for some craft or another!  I didn't have any Going Gray CS anymore so I substituted Basic Gray.  It's a little darker, but I like the end result with the bright colors, offset with the Whisper White.  

I used a few embossing folders to add texture and then stamped this little vintage-y bike image in VersaMark and embossed it with Tempting Turquoise embossing powder.  I also embossed the Celebrate image with white embossing powder.  

I love this card.  It is so bright and cheery.  It's a birthday card anyone would love to receive in the mail.  Now all I have to do is remember to get them in the mail in time!

Thanks for looking.  Have a great day.
