Happy Birthday Dude!

Good Morning all!
It's Wednesday already! 
Half way through the week!
Time for another fab challenge at Dude Time Doodles!
This week it's an Inspirational Challenge
Here's my card!

I made a 150mm x 150mm card blank from a sheet of yellow cardstock.
I added a matt of blue paper, then a matt of the DP from the 
K&Co 12" x12" Hopscotch Pad.
I added a little pennant banner from Whimsy Stamps & added the 
Happy Birthday lettering by hand using a selection of Sakura Pens.
I also added a few little buttons,
The cord tied around the top is recycled from the price tag
which was attached to a top I bought the other week.
I thought the colours fitted perfectly.

I tried to incorporate all the colours & the Birthday theme.

The looks on their faces are priceless!
I bet they were soo looking forward to cake!! lol
I coloured the image with a mixture of Copics & Promarkers,
I also matted the image onto some of the blue paper
then the yellow cardstock.

I decorated the inside of the card to match the front without the
embellishments & the image.
I have to say I was rather pleased with this one!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Now pop on over to Dude Time Doodles & see what 
the rest of the fabarooney DT have created to further inspire you!
