ihp Birthday Bash Color Challenge!

It's Day 3 of i {heart} papers' Birthday Bash, and we're issuing a logo color challenge!

Since ihp is turning three, I thought it would be appropriate to make a birthday card that would be suitable for a three year old!  This turtle from Our Craft Lounge, sporting a birthday sentiment on his shell, a gift, and a trio of balloons for the party, seemed like the perfect choice!  Echo Park's Summer Days paper had the light green/dark green thing goin' on, just like our logo.  To accent the layout's wonky lines, I sponged and outlined the paper's edges and tied on buttons of the opposite color where its corners intersected the pink and blue strips along the top and bottom.  (I would've sewn it instead, but with my latest sewing mishap I don't trust my machine!)

Visit ihp's design team members' blogs for some inspiration, then create and post your can share it on Facebook, Kate's ihp blog, or your online gallery (keyword ihpbb2011).  You have until midnight Saturday to enter.
