Spring Colors




Hi everyone! Back with another birthday card. This one is primarily for the Color Throwdown challenge #257


I love the colors of this one and just had to join in. I made a pretty simple card this time. I used a background stamp and multi-colored it. I then embossed it to give it a shiny appearance and hopefully make the colors more intense. I used a simple birthday banner and topped it off with a button. 
Thanks for visiting and come again!


This is my original card-I took the picture without flash (below). I added the pink background to it, (above)  after thinking that it needed more support to stand up and for strength. The white card stock isn't that sturdy.  I could have added any of the colors that I used in the medallion to give it whatever feel I wanted. I think green would have made it a little more masculine.   


I am also posting this on the Make It Monday blog challenge #156-Anything Goes

I can see how you had to join in just to use the colours, they are fabulous. Love the touch of adding the button, it finishes it off nicely.
