Happy Moments! New SAB set!

The Color Throwdown blog did it again - another BEAUTIFUL color challenge! Baja Breeze and Certainly Celery two of my favorite SU colors, paired with Elegant Eggplant - it's just too much fun!
I wanted to share with you my Happy Birthday card that I made for the CTD color challenge and the Stampin' Royalty sketch challenge! I stamped my little bird cage from the Happy Moments SAB stamp set in Elegant Eggplant ink - then colored in the frame of the cage with Certainly Celery Ink and blender pens! I changed around a few things on the sketch - I tied my ribbon at the top instead! I wanted to keep this card simple since I honestly think the colors are just so pretty together as is!

It's so sad Baja Breeze retired last year! Anytime there are color challenges that use this wonderful shade of blue - I'm so thrilled to get my old supplies out and play along! The patterned paper I used is also retired, it's the Urban Garden DSP! But some fun news is that I did get try the new SU punch format (click here for more information) and the new Scallop Trim Border Punch, which you can get for FREE with a $50 order! The new punches are so great and easy to store! This is great for all of you that love organization!
