AEI♥U Color Combo Challenge

I needed a couple birthday I designed them using the current Avery Elle Challenge -- which is a color combo challenge. 3 beautiful colors (in Avery Elle color names) - Sea Glass, Aquamarine, Lemon Grass and a neutral - White.

Don't those pistachio macaroons look yummy!  I stamped them with lemon grass pigment ink and shaded with Spectrum Noir colored pencil 056. The filling and candles I shaded with Spectrum Noir markers IB1 and IB2.

Yes...glitter! And sequins :)

On this next card, I stacked the macaroons to look like a layered cake. Soooo cute! The bow is colored with the IB1 and IB2 markers. The candles are colored with CG1 marker...then shaded with 056 pencil.

 Yep...more bling bling!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my creations. Have a great weekend!
