Color Throwdown #145

**Updated post 6.8.11 @ 10:30** WARNING!  This is a QUICK POST but I will update it appropriately first thing in the morning...we got home around 9:30 from our Penn State trip, so I'm whipped!  Thankfully I started my card on Monday before we headed out of town.  Laura is hosting for Carole this week, and this is the fun palette Carole selected:
I kind of cheated and went with Soft Sky vs Baja Blue.  Close enough though :]  I finally used my MTME Buzz-y Blooms digi paper, and I paired it with one of my very first cut files, the daisy from Flutters and Flowers.  The leaves came from the same cut file set.  I punched my saffron border using an EK Success border punch.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from my Sentimental Occasions stamp set.  You may have also noticed that I changed up my hand-stitching on this card (I normally cross stitch or make a "v" pattern)...here's a close up.  I like how it turned out!
...and here is a close up to show that there is a "Happy" to go with my "Birthday" sentiment ;]  It's just hiding under my ruffled trim.
The Mojo Monday (MOJO194) sketch was the inspiration for my layout...and a couple other CTD gals!
Okay, swing by the CTD gals' blogs and check out their stunning projects.
