Inspired by....Challenge at PPA

The Pals Paper Arts blog had a photo inspired (see below) challenge this week! What stood out to me the most from this ensemble is the plate (I think it's a plate or maybe a coaster, hahaha!!) of very colorful birds! With the bright, fun colors, I wanted to carry that look onto my card!
So here's what I came up with! A very bright and cherry birthday card! I seem to be giving those out a lot lately! The colors I chose were Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Rose Red, and Tempting Turquoise! Of course white was thrown in there to 'balance' things out! Hahaha!
Stampin' Essentials Tips:
  • I did very minimal stamping on this card! The 'Birthdays are the best!' sentiment is from the Chit Chat Rub-ons (111804)!
  • My Kiwi Kiss flower on the Round Tab punch up top is from the Wings of Friendship Hostess Level 2 set (114308) with a Silver Brad in the center!!!
  • The Two-Step Bird Punch is still available from the Occasions Mini Catalog! The item number for ordering is (117191) and sells for $15.95! It will be in the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog as well!
  • Tangerine Tango is coming back to the line-up of Stampin' Up! colors! Starting in the 2010-2011 IBC available July 1st, you'll be able to order this color, ink, card stock and many accessories again!
