Color Hues #48

Good afternoon. It's the first of the month so time for a new colour combination from Color Hues. It's also our 2nd birthday so we are joining forces with our sister challenge Seize the Birthday to celebrate!
I can't believe we've been going 2 years, it only seems like yesterday that Nancy asked if I was interested in joining the team! 

So for this challenge you not only have you to use the colours below but we'd also like you to make a birthday card to help us CELEBRATE! 

After you link up a card for this challenge make sure you over to Seize the Birthday and link up with them as well!  This challenge and their challenge will be like any other, as each Challenge blog will pick its own winners! 

Here is a direct Link to Seize the Birthday for you! 

OK, here is my take.

When I saw this combination, I thought straight away of a card I made using Stamping Bella's Audrey loves her make up here but then I decided to use this 'young' lady from Art Impressions instead as I'd only recently used Audrey for another colour combo! 

I love these Ai images of ladies of a certain age and the snarky sentiments that come with them.
This one is from Sassy Laugh Lines but I've used a sentiment from another set, Sit Back Laugh Lines.
After stamping, colouring with Copics and fussy cutting, I put her to one side and prepared my background, a snippet of DP from NitWits with the leaves coloured with a Copic marker to match the theme, printer still playing up, and a couple of scalloped edges cut from a scrap of white card. The base card is navy for a change! I added the panel to it and a few Pretty Pink Posh lime green sequins and the sentiment strip completes.

So what do you think of this combination? We'd love you to post in our gallery this time, but don't forget to make it a birthday card.
For more navy and lime inspiration, why not check out the rest of the team here?
