Birthday Forest Friend...


It's time for another fun ColourQ challenge and this week's colours are a lovely bright combination...

I went rummaging through my retired designer paper collection for this one and found some dsp that had Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron (close enough to the colours in the pic!) so I decided start with that...

I used a couple of other challenges to give me some inspiration - the Forest Friends theme from The Card Concept and the TGIF Monthly Remix (I combined the sketch with the birthday theme). Sometimes I need a lot of help with putting my card together when the ideas aren't flowing!!

Once I had the colours, sketch and theme, I broke out the old owl punch and got happy with my layers! I found a bit of old Kiwi Kiss card in my stash to cut the leaf swirl from (from MFT).

Make sure you check out the fabulous inspiration fromt the rest of the Royal Court this week!

Thanks for stopping by...
