Happy Birthday Card Challenge


The bright pink background on this Happy Birthday card is embossed with the Cuttlebug Spots and Dots folder.

The yummy image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and is mounted with 3D tape. The Happy Birthday sentiment is also a digital image. It's from Wendy Made and is layered with punched scalloped circles. And for a bit of sparkle, there's Kindy Glitz on the outside of the scallops.

The images were coloured using watercolours and Twinkling H2O's. The whipped cream was done with Glossy Accents to give a raised effect.

This card is my entry into the following card challenges -

Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge 13 - Happy Birthday

Charisma Cards Challenge - A Question From A Beginner
As a beginner to colour combo challenges, I'm not sure if you can ONLY use the colours stated, or whether the idea is to include those colours, so not sure if this one qualifies. I've added blue as well as these colours.

Maybe someone can give me the heads up on this... Thanks! Apologies if I've taken the wrong approach!

  11. Your card is yummy, Yvonne. Breakfast at Tiffany's indeed! I think in most of the challenges the addition of a little extra color is ok. I try to stick with the colors mentioned, but I've noticed a lot of design team members will sometimes add another color or two but keep the required colors as the focus.
