Happy Birthday!

You know, sometimes when life throws me a curve, the best thing I can do is spend time in my craft room.  Making cards is therapy for me and I always come away with a much better perspective.  The result of my therapy is this pretty poppy card I made for the Color Throwdown Challenge.

Stamp Set:  Painted Poppy (Altenew); Beautiful Birthday (Stampin' Up!)
Inks:  Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy (Stampin' Up!); Oreo Hybrid (Taylored Expressions)
Cardstock:  Sugar Cube
Dies:  Painted Poppy Die (Altenew); Cross-stitched Rectangle Dies (Unknown)
Other:  Copper Embossing Powder (Stampin' Up!); Jewels (Bead Landing)

Today's card was made using the colors from the Color Throwdown Challenge.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.
