Happy Birthday

Good morning...........

I have a card to share today using the colour challenge over at The Paper Players
This is not a colour combination that I would normally use but I thought I would have a go and I was pleased with my end result although it is still very CAS
I have lots of Birthdays in the first 2 months of the year so I find that after the Christmas rush I go straight into Birthday Cards.

Stampin Up Only challenge  is Cards in the Wintertime

I am adding this card to both challenges

I started off with a card base in Whisper White and added some Melon Mambo from 
It's My Party DSP available in the new seasonal catalogue. I cut a stitched panel in whisper white and stamped my sentiment from Party Wishes in Tempting Turquoise, I used some scrap whisper white and  stamped 3 ballooons 2 in real red and 1 in Melon Mambo before using the balloon punch from the Party Punch Pack and added them to my panel, mounting the Melon Mambo with dimesionals and adding some string in Tempting turquoise.
I finished off with some silver cord trim and candy dots.
