Happy Birthday

Bugaboo is celebrating it's 5th Birthday by holding daily challenges with lots of fabulous prizes so I have decided to join in.

This is my card for the third challenge which is a photo inspiration challenge.


This is the inspiration photograph


I was inspired by the cake and the balloons but decided to go for a  pastel colour combination.

My image is called Make It Snappy Happy Birthday, I have coloured it with ProMarkers and added 3D Crystal Lacquer to the balloon, stars and candle flame.  The papers were free with a magazine and the pink seam binding is from my stash.



I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Catch The Bug Monday Challenge - Photo Inspiration
Dream Valley Challenge 98 - Anything Goes
Love to Scrap Challenge 46 - Anything Goes
Not Just Cards Challenge 11 - Anything Goes
Brown Sugar Challenge 129 - Birthday for a Girl

Great take on that photo. Love this card and the colors are ideal for a nice gal birthday. I wish I was standing on the top of the cake so I could eat it all the way down to the plate. LOL Have a fun day.
