Color Throwdown 366

I just loved Danielle Flanders "quick birthday cards in a pinch" tutorial at the Weekly Scrapper. You can see the tut here.  I always seem to be making cards at the last minute so I decided to make a few of these myself.  I decided to use the latest  color throwdown challenge. 
I have to admit I never in a million years would have paired mint green with orange but it looks great!
 The word celebrate is a free die cut file from Scrapbook and Cards Today.  "Its your" comes from Papertrey ink's Wonderful Words: Bithday Mini stamp set.  The word "birthday" comes from Papertrey Ink's Vintage Picnic stamp set.  I hand drew the exclamation points.   It's hard to tell in the photo but the stars are actually glittery.  I punch them out of white, colored with white wink of stella glitter brush maker and layered on top with glossy accents.  It really looks like a purchased embellishment in person.  I think the stars make this card a little more masculine then the sequins Daniel used.  I did one more card in mint green too.

A friend of mine gave me a bright paper pack to make some cards for her.  I tend to shy away from big bold colors but I figured this style of card would work well for this pack of bright colors so...

It was nice participating in a challenge again.  I look forward to doing more in the future!  Thanks for stopping by!  Please come back again!
