[Uniko Studio Challenge] No. 11 - Birthday

Hello Uniko Fans - we are back with a new color and theme challenge.

We ALL loved seeing the bumper of entries with our last challenge and we hope you can take a few elements and get your crafting mojo flowing with this new challenge & we look forward to seeing your entries :)

This months colour inspiration has some lovely bold and regal tones. So hopefully there is something in this color palette that will get your crafting mojo going. Feel free to use any or all elements...

And complimenting the colors, the theme this month is an easy one "Birthday". These types of cards are always in need throughout the year.

Bev here, I selected just 2 of the colours from the palette to create my card...

I decided to dust off A Gift For You (now back in stock) and give it some inky love. I'm not usually a purple kind of person, but the two tones in the pallet really stood out to me. I added a good dose of Hero Arts Prisma Glitter to the bow which is fussy cut and adhered to the gift using foam adhesive. I also used the trio of dots from Today, Tomorrow & Always Time stamped in Frost VersaMark to add interest to the card base.

I was on a creative roll & decided to make another card...

Again I went for the purple tones, but this time instead of using white I used PTI Soft Stone which to me was a close match for the middle colour on the inspiration photo. I went super feminine and reached for Beautiful Blooms I. This time I stamped & embossed the flowers in the light purple with Crystal embossing powder.

This time I added a 'celebrate' sentiment from Flower Power #2, which is perfect for the new 100th Challenge over at CASology HERE.

Let's see how the Design Team faired with this challenge...
