Colorful Birthday

What a fun challenge Just Us Girls has this week! It's a color challenge and the colors
are bright! They have me longing for springtime, but I know we have a ways to go
here in Colorado before it arrives.  The challenge is to use at least 3 of the colors and
any neutrals.  I'm also linking up to Seize the Birthday, where anything goes. They do
have a "toppings" option of hearts but I chose to go without.

I chose to use 4 colors, orange, blue, pink and green, with ivory as my neutral.  The DP
is from a paper set from Hot Off the Press called Serendipity. The coordinating label
is a free download on their website. The ivory panel was embossed with a Cuttlebug
embossing folder.  I punched the flower twice and layered with foam dots, then added a
button that I threaded with some ribbon. The swirls are die cut from an old sizzlits die and
the sentiment was stamped and die cut with the Sizzix Banners 2 stamp and die set.
Thanks for taking a look!
