Deco Birthday

 Hi!  I'm back with my second card as Surprise Party Guest over at Seize the Birthday.  Today's challenge is a colour challenge - purple, blue and green.

At first, I was heading down the flower route and then I decided to follow Laura Bassen's lead and check out geometric patterns on Pinterest which gave me the inspiration for this card:

Firstly, I black hot-foiled the Deco Triangles plate onto Hammermill cardstock, then used the co-ordinating stencils to colour up the panel.  I cut it down slightly and matted it onto a Dark Indigo panel before adding it to a white card base.

The sentiment is a new-to-me die from Memory Box which I die-cut from black and mounted onto a white shadow die.  Each layer is stacked two high.

And for those that are interested, here is the inspiration for my card.  I used black foil rather than gold because gold wasn't one of the challenge colours, but I think this card would look pretty cool in gold as well!

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you'll head over to the Seize the Birthday challenge and have a go!

Ink:  Ultraviolet, Volcano Lake, Emerald, Desert Night (Altenew)
Cardstock:  White, Black, Dark Indigo (PTI)

I do agree that it would look fabulous with gold foil, but it looks awesome with the black foil as well. I love how cleanly you've filled in the blocks - really neat, solid colors. Awesome card! Thank you so much for this wonderful inspiration!

Karren, This is just beautifully done and I love where your inspiration came from! I need to remember to look around when I am in a slump and take inspiration from my surroundings.

Wonderful card Karren, awesome stencilling too, I thought the triangles were inlaid diecuts!! Would look great with the gold too, and that's a gorgeous cushion, Cathy x

Beautiful card with those geometric shapes and our colors. My first thought was flowers also but I went with balloons.
