Celebrate ~ CDD Linky Party

Today is the Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party hosted by Tara of Craftin Desert Divas! Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party and you could win fabulous prizes!!

 Welcome to our mid post for this week's "Favorite Color Combo" challenge.

Here is what I created.

My youngest sister's birthday is coming up very soon so I thought this would be the perfect time to create here birthday card. She doesn't follow my blog or is on Facebook so I am pretty safe posting it before her birthday!

I wish this picture truly showed the colors. The base of the card is a pretty pinky peach color. I layered a piece of gold shimmer vellum on top of the base. It is such a subtle detail but I love when it catches the light. The next layer is a mint patterned paper that I die cut with CDD Fancy Frames Dies.

A piece of acetate with some gold bows was layered on top of the mint. I, then added a strip of the gold shimmer vellum and some peachy ombre' paper. I actually adhere the strips of paper down first before I sent the mint panel through my Big Shot.

I stamped my sentiment from CDD Say It Big sentiments then I added my embellishments.

The card is embellished with die cuts made from CDD Party Dies. I used gold cardstock to create the banner and one of the balloons. The gold theme was carried through to the strings on the balloons and the bow on the present.
