H2H Challenge: Lagoon, Pear and Sunset

This week, it's a colour challenge over at H2H: Lagoon, Pear and Sunset.  This is such a vibrant and pretty combination, so I really enjoyed playing along with this one.  Since these colours were all featured in the fun and flirty Dotty for You paper pack, I decided to use up some of my scraps of this paper to create a fun birthday card.  Here is what I came up with...

I used a Kraft die-cut 6x6 card for this project, and these cards come with envelopes.  Here is the card with it's matching envelope...

Don't you just love the dimension added by the awesome new burlap ribbon from Close to my Heart?  I think it's my favourite new accessory in this Idea Book!  The edges of the ribbon are bound, so to achieve this look, I trimmed the edges and pulled a thread or two with my paper piercer to unravel the edges a bit.  I popped up the green pennant, so it would sit nicely on top of the burlap ribbon, and tied the baker's twine around all of the pennants.  I also popped up the 5 on the tag that holds the card closed.

This came together in a snap, and I hope my little guy likes it!  After his birthday, I might turn it into a mini-album by adding some pages to the inside with pictures from his party.

CTMH Products used to create this card include:
Papers: Dotty for You (retired), and Colonial White cardstock
Stamps: Look Who's Turning (D1502)
Inks: Sunset and Lagoon
Embellishments: Burlap Ribbon (Z1760), Sunset Baker's Twine (Z1702)
