Color Throwdown 699-Birthday Blues (and Purples, too!)

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Vickie is our hostess this week with a beautiful mix of colors--blue, purple, and white.
Happy Birthday to You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti
I paired the colors with the current challenge at The Paper Players. The large sentiment panel was a perfect fit for the "happy birthday to you" sentiment I created with stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti. The "happy" was die cut from purple and blue cardstock, with the blue letters adhered directly to the purple die cut word. I used foam tape to adhere the die cut piece to the white panel. The "birthday to you" sentiment was stamped beneath the die cut piece in purple ink. The panel was matted on purple cardstock, then adhered to a blue card base over a piece of blue patterned paper with a fun metallic silver pattern.

To play along, just create a paper crafted project using these colors as a starting point and add a direct link to your finished project using the linky tool found at the end of this week's CTD post.  As always, if you don’t have exact color matches, something close works just fine.  Just be sure that the challenge colors are the dominant ones in your project.  And, if you upload your project to an online gallery, use the keyword CTD699.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd699 and #colorthrowdown.  You can find us on Instagram and on Facebook with the username colorthrowdown.  Before you get started, here’s some inspiration from the talented Color Throwdown team and this week's Guest Star Stamper Lisa Blastick.
