Said Two Year Old is turning THREE today! Since her favorite color is blue, and the "main" color that is part of the current challenge at The Color Throwdown is blue, (SU! Ballet Blue, to be exact, along with a light green and a dark green.) I decided to make the birthday card my challenge card.
I also gave myself a personal challenge. I couldn't cut into a new piec of anything to make this card. As a result, the card base is 4 1/8" x 4" since that was the folded size of a piece of handy Ballet Blue card stock. I dug in my scrap folders for some Certainly Celery as the light green. It has a little texture to it as it was a sample piece used to run some Fiskars texture plates on my Big Shot. Very subtle texturing, but it's there! And, I had so much fun making polka-dots for The Lollipop Ladies last challenge, I decided to make some for this card, too. -) The only dark green that shows up is in one of the ribbons, but that's okay. I think this is the perfect card for my No Longer The Two Year Old. (Hmmmmm, now I have to come up with a new 'name' for her!)
Here's the card!
