A colour challenge at PCW

Over at the Paper Crafting World challenge this week, we are having a colour challenge using some or all of the colours cream, yellow, orange teal and dark teal.

I found this neat Birthday Fun freebie that Melin was giving away on the blog hop at Cooking with Cricut.last weekend and used that to create the wording for this birthday card. I reduced the size of it to fit the card and cut it using my Cricut and SCAL 2. I cut the letters in orange and laid them onto a yellow backing layer. I coloured the present with a teal shade Copic marker and topped it with a cream ribbon. The balloons were partial stamped on the background layer the I paper pieced the balloons in different colours. Added a bit of sparkle to them as well!

I used spellbinders dies to create the shapes at the left side of the card, cutting them from a light teal colourded card then edging them with a distress marker to make it look stitched. The border across the top was cut from cream card using a fiskars punch then edged with the same distress marker.

Do check out the challenge for this week over at Paper Crafting World!
