Happy Birthday Gorgeous - with a twist of citrus zing!

I made this card especially for wonderful colour challenge hosted by The Paper Players this week.

The colours to use are Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Lemon Lime Twist.  They are fresh and zingy and ooze the essence of lazy summer days!  Whilst the colours aren't ones that I would have immediately combined myself, as my card came together, the colour combo definitely grew on me.
I've used the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set to create the lower background section of the card.  Three rows of words, associated with birthdays, are stamped in Pool Party ink on Pool Party card.  Don't you just love that pretty swirly font?  The photopolymer stamps make it straight forward to place the words in the right place!

Next, I have punched out lots of large balloons from Pool Party card to create the faux embossed section at the top.  The two sections are separated with a piece of beautiful Lemon Lime Twist ribbon.

Finally, three balloons are added to ensure that the celebratory mood is confirmed!  The larger of the three balloons comes from another, equally gorgeous, birthday set called Balloon Celebration.  To set them apart from the background they are popped up using dimensionals and they float on Baker's Twine strings.
