Color Throwdown #423

Today's card, for the Color Throwdown #423, is a simple birthday card for my sister-in-law. The colors from the challenge were perfect for a December birthday as it's holiday-inspired but not over the top. I used the Ellen Hutson Essentials by Ellen Hello Gorgeous for my background and sentiments. I used Distress Crayons (Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry, and Twisted Citron) for the coloring, I haven't used them much but I love these things! I heat embossed the sentiment on some vellum and mounted the whole thing on a kraft card base and called it a day! Oh wait, I had to add some sparkle so I colored the gems with a Wink of Stella Brush Pen.

Thanks for reading!
