The Challenge # 34 Colors!

Welcome everyone.   
Today I am the Guest Designer on "THE CHALLENGE" after my polka dot win card a couple of weeks ago. 
It is a color challenge this time around: 

I hope you will go take a look at the challenge and be inspired by the other designers!  Sometimes it is a sketch challenge and like this time, it is a color challenge!
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
And thank you all from "the challenge" for selecting my card as the winner!
I am honored and proud to participate with this challenge!

I smooshed orange zest and harvest gold onto the paper first.  I actually dried it with the heating tool because I was impatient to let it sit and dry on its own!
The big banner that I am loving is from PTI is Layered Banner Banter..there are two dies and then stamps that will fit into the banner.  I chose a polka dot orange zest color for the folded layer of the banner.  My big sentiment "celebrate"  was stamped with both harvest gold (at the top) and orange zest at the bottom half of the word.  The "on your birthday is from Lovely Laurels. The balloon is a die and stamp from Simon Says: Birthday Balloons and the string was hand drawn!  I added a few green sequins to the card for some more green!

Thank you so much for taking a look!  Have a great week!
