CYCI#73 A Color Challenge!

Its Sunday!!! And that can only mean one thing its time for another CYCI challenge!!!
We've got some colors that really can pack a wallup!

So I've been working on the end of the school year stuff with Butter which is weird, cause he's in the middle of a grade! So we are going to work on finishing 5th grade this summer, and hopefully he will be done, and move forward with 6th in the fall!  He has a few revisions to do before the tuesday, to bring his grade up in English but he has outstanding grades overall!

Enough of that.. lets get to business! lol...

I decided to go with a Birthday Card for my project this week.
I am so loving how my card turned out. I've got I cardbase in Sahara Sand, I thought this was the warmest color and great for a cardbase! Then I've got layers of Basic Black and Whisper White, on the WW layer, I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in Blushing Bride, which give me that speckled look.  Then I stamped my star topped candles from Big News in Memento Tuxedo Black, and Blushing Bride Stampin' Write Marker, to take the BB to the next level. At this point I went to the Happy layer which is a die from Die-namics called Celebrate (it comes with 4 dies) in both Sahara Sand (in the background) and Basic Black for the top layer. The step on my card was the Birthday stamp from Celebrate Today.

Overall I'm very happy with the finished project!
I hope you'll enjoy it too
I wanna thank Justin for the fantastic color picks!
