Inspirational Birthday

Good morning everybody!

Today I am sharing my card with you for the new Friendship's Garden Challenge. This time around we have a colour challenge with the additional theme of Birthday. It's a really vibrant colour palette for this challenge, it was lovely to start working with such fresh colours again. Have a look on the challenge blog website to see the colour scheme and all the DT girls' makes!

I decided to make a birthday card for a young boy or girl, I was running low on those in my card stash.

The card came together pretty easily, I love the gorgeous orange paper against the green!
