Party Puffins Birthday

It is Thursday and time for a new Create with Connie & Mary Challenge!


This week it is a color challenge.


I went round and round on what to use for this challenge.  I finally landed on the Party Puffin set.   I mean you have heard of Night of Navy colored puffins, right?


The puffin is stamped in Night of Navy ink and his beak and feet are colored using Pale Papaya and Sweet Sorbet Stampin' Blends.   The little cake again have those colors on it and some Night of Navy frosting.   I haven't used the three little things template in a while and it is one of my favorite layouts.  I am happy to have little square dies again!  These little squares are part of the Stylish Shapes dies and are the smallest squares.   I did fussy cut the images and I will tell you that they are not the easiest to cut out, especially around the candle flames.  Here's the trick I use to help cover up my fussy cutting mishaps.  In the areas that are difficult to cut closely along the line I use a marker to cover up the white. 


The DSP background is from the In Color 2022-24 6" x 6" Assortment and behind it is a Night of Navy CS layer.  The card base is Basic White cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored at 4-1/4".  The pretty white ribbon is the  White 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon.  The tiny Sweet Sorbet dots are from the 2022-24 In Color Matte Dots.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the Create with Connie & Mary design team created for the challenge,
