Another Birthday Card

So the majority of my family has birthdays in April and May so I have a lot of birthday cards to get made. I made this birthday card with the Cardz TV Design Team challenge in mind. The challenge is Over the Rainbow, to make a project using Pink, Green, Blue and Yellow only with limited amounts of white and black allowed.

My card base is white card stock cut and folded to 4 1/4" X 5 1/2". I added a dark teal blue mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4". My striped paper is from SEI and is cut at 3 3/4" X 5". The stripes in the this paper are yellow, green, light and darker teal blue and pink. My flower and its layers is cut from the Garden Soup cartridge at 3". When I first got this cartridge I wasn't sure how much I would use it. All the images in the handbook are all done with such light and washed out colors that it wasn't real appealing, however, I am loving the images on the cartridge now done up in brighter colors.

The rick rack ribbon I got at Walmart and believe it not it is called rainbow. It went perfectly with my project so I added a piece to my card. I used some Turquoise chalk ink to stamp my sentiment which is from the Cardz TV birthday stamp set. I added a lime green button to the middle of my flower with some turquoise striped twine tied in a not. 

I sure hope everyone is having a great day. We are finally getting some Spring/Summer type whether and I believe we hit 75 for the first time since October today. The next two days are supposed to be 80 degrees. Whoo!!
