Normally when you see these three colours together you would usually think of a bright project full of these fun colours not a card that is bold and rich in colour with an intense depth to the colours used like what I've created here today.

Keeping with the colourful background techniques, I've given the sponge brayers a workout today to achieve the range and depth of colour that I got on the background layer to my card.

I started my card by gold embossing the doilies on to the background first and then working from the bottom up I covered the Shimmery White Cardstock starting with first Gorgeous Grape and then the Bermuda Bay, rolling the colour on with a sponge brayer. Just keep rolling the brayer over the cardstock until you are happy with the colour. Just remember, the more colour you put on, the darker the colour will be.

Where the Gorgeous Grape and the Bermuda Bay colours overlap it looks like I've added Night of Navy into the mix but that is just where the two colours blended together when rolling the colour on with the sponge brayer.

I splattered some water over the card to pull some of the colour out and to give another look to the card and then because I thought this card was busy enough it really didn't need much else other than the 'Happiest' and 'To You' embossed in gold and then the 'birthday' die cut, 3 times, from Lovely Lipstick cardstock and then layered on top of each other for some added height and dimension.

Just a few sequins scattered on the card and a little bit of Gold Metallic Thread and then that finishes off the whole card. This is one of those cards that is even better in real life as the depth of colour is just unbelievable.
