Seize the Birthday Challenge #253 - Winged Things

Welcome to another year of Seize the Birthday Challenge! We have some new changes for this year and I think you will be excited about them. I am, and I am ready to get some gorgeous birthday cards made. 

Cathy is the host for the very first challenge at Seize the Birthday Challenge and she has picked 
Winged Things.
There are many winged things for sure, but I had a new die that I was wanting to use and that is a dragonfly. I also had some new products that I recently saw on a video and purchased and I used that too. Actually, I used a lot of that. 
If you are not a toppings kind of person, just make sure that it is a Birthday theme. 

My card for this challenge. 
If you are wondering about the video that I saw, it was one that 
                Chris Stokes did with Gilding Flakes. You can see it Here
I did the dragonfly and the background too. 
Honey Bee Lovely Layers Bugs
Sizzix Tim Holtz embossing folder. I cut around the edge of the folder to let the base show.

Color Hues - #55 Pink and Gold

Pink and Gold are the colors for this challenge and it just so happens that I had some die cuts already done that would fit this challenge. This morning, I put them together in an arrangement that I liked and called it done. Looks like I have started my Valentine's Cards. 
Here is my entry.

I used my Pink and Main hot foil die called Overlapping Geo Plate. I love both the positive and the negative. I was playing when we first came to Florida for the winter as I only have access to my hot foil system here. So I did some of both in different colors. I am sure that you will see those in future cards. 
I also used Gina K card stock in Dusty Rose and the sentiment is Gina K also called A Little Love. The flowers are from that set too and as I mentioned I had them cut and colored. They belong in this Pink and Gold Challenge. 

I am entering this in the Color Hues Challenge.
