Happy Birthday {CTD339}

Hello and happy Wednesday! It's time for another Color Throwdown challenge and this week it a dramatic color palette - take a peek!

Gorgeous, right?! I loved the daisies on the cell phone cover and wanted to use those on my card too. I cut out a few of the Plentiful Petals Die-namics in Smooth White card stock and then added some shimmery yellow card stock in the center (with some black enamel dots too, of course). I stamped the sentiment in Sweet Tooth pigment ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Love the look of the white lettering on black. Yummy!

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Color Throwdown team created for you today:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
