IHP Birthday Bash Color Challenge

WOW ~ I can't believe i{heart}papers is 3 years old & that later this month I will have been with Kate and the team for 3 years as well.  Time has just flown by!

As part of the birthday celebration, Kate is sponsoring a color challenge using the 3 colors in her logo (pink, green and blue).

I took a few liberties on the color palette, but I did use all three.  I also added a bit of yellow & red that were part of the pretty pattern paper by October Afternoon called Sidewalks.  I thought this paper was perfect for this challenge.

I made the flower on the card using pleated ribbon from Maya Road and colored the top pleats with a Copic Marker (R83).  Then I wrapped the ribbon in a circle using a 2" Gl├╝ber as the base.  I added a button and a Kaiser clear gem to the botton (also colored with my Copic Marker).   The sentiment on the card is from the Comforting Florals set by Market Street Stamps and is stamped in Palette Noir Ink.

For my sweet box, I just used some bits and pieces of pattern paper to decorate it and Nestabilities for the shapes and borders.

The designers for i{heart}papers have put together a fun celebration hop for you today ~ you'll want to take a look and play along for changes to win some great products!
