Gulp. I just accepted my first challenge. On, they have thrown out a challenge for a specific color combination. Anyone accepting the challenge must use these colors in their My Digital Studio creation: Primrose Petals, Peach Parfait, Daffodil Delight, Midnight Muse, and Whisper White.

Not being wild about this color combo, I decided to revisit Stacy's birthday card, and switch it up a bit.

Primrose Petals, Daffodil Delight, and Peach Parfait are perfect for balloon colors. Don't you agree? And adding a few touches of the Midnight Muse contributes a little more contrast and definition to the pastel-looking creation. Since I was not going to be mounting this onto a separate piece of card stock like I did in my previous card, I decided it could use a little bit of a party atmosphere, so I chose a Daffodil Delight and Whisper White Designer Series Paper from Nursery in MDS.

This is not a hybrid card like the Stacy's birthday card. Remember, I had added a three-dimensional look by cutting out two of the balloons and popping (popping balloons???) them up a bit with Stampin' Dimensionals, added glitter to the star and the striped balloon, and then mounted it on another piece of card stock. This one was solely created in My Digital Studio, and could either be printed on my home printer or ordered through the Printing Service provided by MDS. The creations that are printed professionally turn out AWESOME!

All in all, I'm pretty happy with the results of my first challenge.
