Double Challenge

I had time to make a card for a couple of challenges on the weekend, I just didn't have time to write my post - so I have missed the deadline for one of them!!!  The other two are Create with Connie and Mary's colour challenge, and Less is More's what makes you happy challenge.  I have to say one of the things that makes me really happy is birthdays, whether mine or someone else's I just think there is something truly special about birthdays. Here is my creation:

As regular visitors to my blog will know, I struggle with big open spaces on a card and when making this it took a lot of effort not to fill in the left hand side.  I did think of adding some bling, but kept that to the little flowers on the right.  I have made this using the cute little stamp from Perpetual Birthday Calendar, I coloured the flowers with Stampin' Write Markers.  I added the little birthday cake from Amazing Birthday.

Happy Stamping
