A new challenge!

I am always so excited about finding new challenges!  You would think I have nothing better to do than sit around and make cards all day. lol This one is a color challenge site, and they use Stampin' Up! colors. Yay!  It is called Colour Me...and each week is a different theme. So, it looks like this week is Colour Me...Playful!  The color combination is a new one for me and I had a lot of fun with it!
I never would have put these colors together, so thank goodness for challenge sites to keep me on my toes! I chose the layout to work with from one of my favorite challenge sites, Create with Connie and Mary
I just LOVE that sketch, don't you?!  I am definitely filing this one to use again.  
I kept my card fairly simple. It's hard for me to use so many colors if I get too detailed, so I included a lot of white to balance all of those fun colors.  I used too different fonts for the "Happy" and "Birthday" to keep the playful theme, and Candy Dots were the perfect embellishment for some birthday fun!

Stamp Sets: Countless Sayings 2, Sassy Salutations, Oh Hello
Cardstock: Gumball Green, Blushing Bride, Whisper White
Ink: Blushing Bride, Gumball Green, Pumpkin Pie, Pool Party
