CTD183: Happy Birthday with Pennants

This is the card I created for the Color Throwdown weekly challenge. The colors were Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Really Rust and Craft. I didn't have Really Rust or Craft so I did some substitutions. For Really Rust I used Calypso Coral and for Craft I substituted Crumb Cake

I'm still not great at tying bows although I am getting better....I think. I also love embossing background pieces after I have stamped them. I think it adds a lot of dimension to the card.
