Coloring Down the Lines - Build a Birthday

It's blog time again, and our coloring down the lines challenge seemed to come easy this week. Go figure! Sometimes the colors I love the most are so difficult to create a design for, but the ones that are variations of colors just flow. This one did just that. I didn't have to think too hard, and I was finished before you know it.

Let's check out the photograph and color pallet first.

 Now, looking at the photograph, what would you have designed for the challenge this week? Do you want to see what I made? Yes, ok, I won't make you wait .... here it is:

I added some touches to the card by coloring a satin rose using rose red, and lined the cake plate with tip top taupe lace ribbon. I think the lace gave it just the right effect I was looking for.

If you've arrived here from Amanda's blog, be sure to keep hopping on over to see what Joni created as well. I love seeing all the designs from everyone. Gives me inspiration to create, create, create.

Thanks for stopping by.
