Giggle Greetings & a Color Challenge

It's Thursday and time for another challenge from Create with Connie and Mary!  This time we have a fun color challenge of So Saffron, Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon.  I had to look around for awhile to find any DSP in any of these colors, given the catalog transition period, and found this Hello Honey print in the Cherry on Top Paper Stack (the catalog description includes Hello Honey but the list on the Paper Stack doesn't.  However after comparison I found it does match Hello Honey perfectly.)

This cheese was just the thing to showcase the yellow tones of ink!  I stamped it in Stazon Black,colored it with Blender Pens and inks then layered it on Lost Lagoon cardstock.  The card base is Hello Honey over which is a layer of So Saffron which has been punched with two different circle punches to emulate the holes in the cheese. 

Birthday presents have bows so why not cards too?!  I used the Bow Builder Punch to make the bow out of the Hello Honey print then used Lost Lagoon cardstock for the "ribbon" and around the center of the bow!  I can think of a few friends that I believe will get a kick out of a card like this for their birthday!  : )

Paper:  Cherry on Top DSP Stack; Whisper White, Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, So Saffron
