Have a Super Birthday

Goodness me, its already week three at Just us Girls and its a colour challenge.  The ladies would like you to use Yellow, Orange and Turquoise.

Recently my eldest celebrated his birthday so I incorporated the colours into a card for him from his brother.

I started by stencilling the background in yellow and orange then used Versamark to add some clear sparkle embossing powder.  The cat is from Clearly Besotted Caped Cuties set just coloured with alcohol markers in greys through to black.  The balloons are from MFT Birthday Bears set, die cut out and popped behind the cat.

The sentiment is from the Caped Cuties set and the brother is from another Clearly Besotted set with matching dies.

These colours are so cheery to work with and it would be great to see how you interpret the challenge, so why not pop along to see lots of gorgeous inspiration from the DT :)
