ColorLab 30 – Happy Birthday!

ColorLab 30 – Happy Birthday! published on 10 Comments on ColorLab 30 – Happy Birthday!

Spring is in the air…at least over at the ColorLab Challenge this week.  It was even in the air for a while here in Virginia but winter decided to make a return.  Oh well, soon enough I’ll be planting my garden!  Take a look at the wonderful colors we have for you:

Around this time of year, whenever I see pink and green as a color combination I think of cherry trees.  I LOVE cherry trees!  I have one in my front yard and it is spectacular when it blooms.  In fact, the blooms on my tree are pretty much Pink Pirouette.  With that on my brain, there was no avoiding the fact that I had to pull out my retired Branch Out set.  It is one of the all time great sets, in my humble opinion! 

It is so easy to give the “cherry tree effect” with this.  I inked up the tree in Crumb Cake, the stamped on the leaves in Wild Wasabi and Pink Pirouette.  The Crumb Cake  patterned paper might look familiar since it is from the recently retired Deck the Halls DSP.  The bow is my first attempt at Sharon Field’s Double Loop Bow Method.  While I do like the end result, trust her when she says to start with a wider ribbon (Satin Ribbon would be my suggestion).  This has a different look than my typical double loop bows and I think it is pretty for this card.

You want to know who this birthday card is for??!!  It is for Stampin’ Addicts, one of my very favorite sites!!  They are celebrating their 2nd birthday and I am participating in a virtual card shower.  You can see some other fabulous birthday wishes on the Virtual Card Shower Thread.  But just wait, starting tomorrow (Feb 25th) there is a Techniques Blog Hop to continue the birthday celebration.  You won’t want to miss it!!
