color challenge wednesday #15

So if you glance back a post, the clean & simple sunday card featured not only a simple card pattern and a cute little robot, but a color combo of navy, lido and seattle … I loved putting those colors together (the lido and navy) and decided to expand it a bit and try some other colors with the lido and I came up with this week’s color challenge…

This card features mostly pumpkin with sky, lido and a tiny bit of navy in the sentiment ink. I like how the cool sky and navy help to balance out the heat of the pumpkin and lido. This combination is modern, masculine and I think the stars paired with the Happy Birthday sentiment also make it festive. I didn’t really embellish this design at all but you could add 3 or 5 little sparkles in a row under the sentiment to add some extra shine or draw some little swirls toward the right upper corner with your Quickie Glue Pen and dust it with glitter to make it look like the stars are falling. You could also embellish the stars by adding a threaded button to the center of each or outline them with glue and add a dusting of glitter… lots of ideas to change the look of this great birthday card! Hope you have fun this week trying out this color combination!
