Joy to You

I challenged myself to finish my card for the W&W January Color Combo with Heather H today.  That's because February is the month for W&W's 4th Birthday Bash--lots of fun challenges!  It worked because here's my card which I popped into the mail this afternoon. 
Shades of pink, brown & gold are so beautiful together that it was really fun to come up with this birthday card.  I started by smooshing Distress Inks spun sugar & victorian velvet onto a strip of watercolor cardstock.  I added splatters of Gansai Tambi Champagne gold watercolor & die cut it with W&W True Multifaceted Border die.  I also die cut a scrap of brown cardstock & inlaid the pink pieces.  The card front was splattered with more of the gold watercolor & the sentiment from CFS was stamped in Hero Arts Cup O' Joe.  I stacked the Joy die cut from In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals & brushed the top one in the gold watercolor.  A bit different for a BD card, but hopefully it will make the recipient smile.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday & WAW.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
