H2H Challenges: A Birthday Color Challenge

This week Heart 2 Heart Challenges has issued a "birthday color challenge."  Say what?!?  You don't have to have a birthday theme to your project, but you do have to use the color assigned to your birth month for your creation.
Since my assigned color is Thistle, I decided it would be a perfect fit for my niece's 14th birthday card for her birthday today.  I ended up pairing it with the colors of the Confetti Wishes paper pack, though I had really wanted to try a different color combo.
My card used two cuts from the CTMH/Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge: the Thistle swing card base and the White Daisy happy birthday sentiment.  I did color the cupcake just a little with a few of my (retired) marching markers.
I embellished the "celebrate" bottom border (that I cut by hand from a strip of the B&T) with purple shimmer trim and the front with a few purple sparkle gems.  The inside sentiments come from one of the stamp sets that comes with the Artfully Sent cartridge.

I can't wait to see this pretty young lady soon to give her the card and her present.  Of course I didn't think to have it with me at her piano recital!  She and our older daughter performed Sunday along with our dear friend Joy and several others.  It was lovely!

{Don't forget that you have all month to play along with any of the H2H January challenges!  Won't you join us?)
