A Bold and Bright Birthday!!

Today it was my turn to set the challenge over at Paper Cupcakes and in the spirit of keeping the cold wintery blues away I thought I'd set the theme of a Children's Birthday card. You can translate that any way you want but for me, it's all about making something bold and bright that appeals to a child and using a cute, fun image, so here's mine:

The image is from Paper Cupcakes and is coloured with promarkers. All the papers are from WRMK Nonsense (which have been at the bottom of a pile for ages!!) Also, on this card I used my Slice quite a lot - to cut out the frame around the image, the 'birthday' wording, the circle and the balloons - yep, I'm still lovin' it!!! Lastly, I used a MFT die to cut out the scalloped border.
I'm also entering my card into the following challenges: One Stop Craft Challenge - #119 Birthday Cards, Card Makin Mamas - #15 Happy Birthday!, Simply Create - #37 It's Bright in here and For Fun Challenges - Happy Birthday.
Also, I wanted to say a big welcome to my new followers and thanks for joining me!! And, I'm sorry to anyone that I usually visit if I haven't made it round to you this weekend, it seemed to fly by and every time I logged on to do some commenting there seemed to be so much to look at, so I visited as many as I could but I'm sure that there were a few I'd missed out - please forgive me!!!
I hope you'll join in with the challenge this week, there's a free image on the site that you can use if you do decide to join in but you don't have to use a Paper Cupcakes image and everyone always needs cards for the kids!!!
Well, I'd better be off, I'm going round to see lots of my friend's today as they're all off on half term (nearly all my friends are teachers!!) and there are a few new babies too, so I'll make sure to get some cuddles in!! Hopefully, I'll be round to visit you later. Bye for now..........x
