Nacho Color Challenge Birthday

When I first saw the color combo on this week's Nacho Average Challenge blog, I thought that I couldn't come up with anything. These colors just weren't calling to me. But I persevered and thought outside my comfortable box.

I started with a Tangelo Twist card base and added a Basic Gray panel. Then I went in search of some DSP in Crush Curry. The Best Year Ever DSP that you can earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying purchase has a sweet Crushed Curry sheet.

I tried a little something different: I punch a tag from the DSP using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Next, I punched another tag in Whisper White and stamped three balloons from the "Balloon Bash" set in the Nacho color combo. I added a sentiment from the "And Many More" set in Basic Gray to the DSP label. 

I added a Tangelo Twist Ribbon and some Basic Rhinestones to finish the design.

I think these colors are masculine enough to use for a man's birthday card--even with the ribbon and bling!
