Birthday, Balloons and Flowers

There's not much to say about this card as I've kept it very clean. This little cutie is from A Day for Daisies and I colored her up using Promarkers. I added glossy accent to the balloons and stamped a very simple birthday greeting.

The DP is a favorite - it's been in my stash for more than a year! For some reason my favorite papers seem to be left untouched for a long time, like I'm waiting for the perfect occasion to arise to use it. But if I leave it for too long, then my taste might have changed and that would be a waste... I mounted the DP onto red paper, and the A2 card base is made using white cardstock.

Tomorrow is a special day in Norway. Every year we celebrate that we got our own Constitution on May 17th, 1814, and that makes tomorrow its 200th anniversary! We' will walk to Oslo's city center, it's a 15 minute walk, and look at all the children, and grownups, walking the parade and playing music. And we'll drink champagne for breakfast - it's a tradition for many (those who're old enough and don't have to drive) for this particular date.

I'd also like to pass on my birthday wishes to Sandie over at Ink - Happy Birthday, Sandie!

This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #56 Photo Inspiration
2) Fan-Tastic Tuesday - #35 CAS
3) Inky Chicks - #29 CAS
4) Cards in Envy - May Flowers A2 card
5) Seize The Birthday - Birthday with Flowers
6) Incy Wincy Designs - Birthdays

An adorable image Pia and wonderful colours. The paper is perfect behind and you are right we keep things in our stash because we love them but it is great to share them with others when we do use them. Wonderfully coloured and perfect for our challenge at Come and Get It. Hope you are well. Meg

This is one of my favourite adfd images and you've coloured her beautifully for a really sweet card. Yes, use up your favourite papers before you a) go off them or b) end up with a load of dog-eared faded old paper! Enjoy your day out. Thank you for joining us at Inkspirational Challenges.
