Birthstone Birthday

Captivated by another Sliekje digi, I decide to combine this image with the Saturday Spotlight challenge to use my birthstone color in a birthday card. Since opals can range from pink to a deep blue-green with an iridescent rainbow of colors within, I wasn't sure how to proceed, so I just followed the mouse.



Lots of pink, and a little of the blue-green, and although it doesn't show here, the background paper is spritzed with a mica spray giving it an iridescent sparkle. I have the Faux Stitching, Spritz and Shimmer, and Out of the Box Technique Junkie techniques going on in this card, too.

The Sunflowers and Dragonflies challenge this week is teal, artichoke, and pomegranite - I think I'm pretty close.

Now, here's the hard question - do you think I can give this card to anyone over 3 years old?
