HB, Paula

Happy Saturday!  It's time for another challenge @ Our Creative Corner.  Paula, has an interesting color challenge for us to try this week.  Paula, wants you to create a cake creation using Red, Blue, and Yellow with layer upon layer.  My first question was what shade of red, or blue.  The yellow, I pretty much have that covered.  But, Paula mentions super hero s, so the shades I selected are deep and bright.  

Here is my card: 


For those who know me, this is not my typical color combo.  But, this is labeled as a challenge.  I selected Not Quite Navy for my card base.  I thought this color would help ground my card and give it a starting point.  Not only as the card base, but a base for coordinating the other colors.  The blue/yellow pattern paper is from a Teresa Collins collection, I believe.  The text pattern paper is from Paper Studio.  I used my red to showcase embellishments.  I used an Authentique Valentine's Day themed paper for the red/cream polka dot pattern paper.  I added a scrap piece of the red checker ribbon to add a splash of color towards the bottom of the card.  I used my Utility stamp set for the cake and the sentiment.  I used white embossing powder and my heat gun to emboss the cake image.   I just love the shading.  I added a lady bug fabric brad to attach the multi-loop bow to the top of the birthday tag.
I hope you get a chance to play along with us @ OCC.

Hello Sharon,
Well I think you have made the best cake out of all of us;it looks stunning.
I also love your big bow with the ladybug button-how cute is that?
You have designed this card wonderfully, all the papers sit well together, and although you say this is not a typical colour combo for you, sometimes it helps our creativity to think outside the square.
Great card.
Smiles :-)
