Make a Wish

Well, my wish would be for an easier color combination next week! Guest hostess Faith picked these colors for the CC226 challenge today: Baja Breeze, Tempting Turquoise, Apricot Appeal, and Creamy Caramel. How’s that for a real challenge!

I ended up mimicking the candles on the Birthday Bliss image, cutting them out of Tempting Turquoise card stock. The flames were cut out of Apricot Appeal card stock and sponged with Creamy Caramel ink. I used retired Parisian Breeze Specialty Designer Series Paper in the background and tied my tag to the card with Apricot Appeal grosgrain ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!
