AAA Birthday Challenge #33 - Two Favourite Colours + Micro Blog Hop

Happy New Year!

It's the first AAA Birthday Challenge of 2022 and we challenge you to create a birthday card featuring your 2 favourite colours.

To celebrate the New Year, new beginnings and new blog colours AAA Birthday and AAA Cards are having a micro blog hop.

Fancy winning a £10 spend at ........ or a second prize of a mystery parcel? Then play along like this:

1. Comment on both AAA Birthday and AAA Cards first 2022 challenge post.

2. For two extra entries into the draw enter a different card at each of the first 2022 challenges.

To accommodate the different timings of the two challenges the Micro Hop will begin at 8.00am UK time on Sunday 9th January and close at 23.55 UK time on Saturday 22nd January.

You can of course enter cards at AAA Birthday before and after those dates, but they will not be a part of the prize draw.

For my card I chose 2 Distress Oxide colors: Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers.
I blended these colors onto a piece of cardstock and used the Cosmo Flower Petals from SSS to cut out the leaves.

Then I used the same 2 colors to stamp the dotted background which is from Altenew.
I adhered this background onto the cardbase and used foam tape to adhere the flower.

Finally I stamped the sentiment from IO with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
