Color Challenge

I made two cards for the SCS color challenge today. We were to use cameo coral, certainly celery, and chocolate chip. Love this combo! My first paisley card is a very clean and simple look. I used TT acrylic paisley set to create my paper. Martha Stewart wonderful ribbon and her little punch for my tag. The sentiment is SU.
Then over to the highly embellished. The present stamp is from the $ bin at M's I masked it and stamped three, colored with prismacolors. The wonderful 'happy birthday' tag is from MM they come in a big package in silver. They are meant to be used with a tag curler, but it was expensive so I did without the tool. I covered it in Craft ink and heat set clear embossing powder over it then sanded the letters to see the sentiment. There is a little hole in the top of these that I threaded my ribbon through. I did some doodling for the frame. The polka dot stamp is B-line design. Paper piercing with white gel pen. Fabulous primas and a jeweled brad to top it off! Whew! Lots of stuff but it sure was fun!

I know the second card has embellishments and usually go for the bling, but I must say the first card is WOW, love the colors and simplicity of it. You did such a fantastic job on it.
