Raise the Bar Challenge #15 - Color Me Happy

This week's challenge is Color Me Happy! Use your favorite color! Don't forget to check out the Raise the Bar Challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's lovely cards!

Okay, I broke the rules on this one...I think I was suppose to make a monochromatic card and I didn't, lol. So this isn't a good example for this challenge...but Kiwi Kiss is my favorite color. I'm also very excited to be getting Baja Breeze back. :) This started out as Flutter by Wednesday #106, but is a little altered.

Paper: SU
Stamps: The Greeting Farm, sentiment is Amuse
Copics, Crystal Stickles, Prima Flowers, PTI Buttons, Rhinestones, and Thickers


I decided to do something different with the numbers. I like it, but then a part of me thinks other people will think it's weird, lol. What do you think? I won't be offended either way.

Everyone have a fabulous weekend! I will be cleaning and organizing. I can't wait to get this done so I can paint my room! I have a stack of goodies building up, so I promise to do blog candy soon.

  5. She's very cute! Running with that cake though, hope she doesn't trip and land face first onto it! LOL The colors are wonderful and I like the numbers separated...don't people say, it's the big 3-0 sometimes when it gets to this birthday?

    Good luck finishing up your project, girlie. A lot of work, but oh so satisfying at the end! *Ü*

  9. *gasp* You're using up your Kiwi Kiss!! I was so sad it wasn't announced to come back :(. But yay for Baja Breeze! The numbers look fine - at first glance I thought it was for a 3rd birthday, for a little girl, but then I noticed the 0 and put two and two together :)

  24. :D Chibi! This image always makes me smile. I need to print off some more and play.

    I'm glad you didn't completely follow the RTB challenge, 'cause I love it! Even the 3-0. It's different, but a good different.

  25. Great card. I like the numbers...like saying they turned 3-0 insted of 30.

  26. I think your card is adorable in every way Sparkle! Speaking of breaking the rules, I think I broke the rule for your challenge as well. I used my favorite colors but failed at the mono-chrome part of the challenge:)
    Take care and have a great day!

  27. This is co cute! I looove the colors. I wish Kiwi Kiss was going to be in that list though. That is a good green. I also like the numbers separated.
