Birthday Sweetness

Good morning all! Today I am sharing with you a card I made using one of the newly release Whimsy and Stars Studio spring images! This cutie is called Birthday Chickie, this image clearly perfect for any birthday card and I thought for today that was what I would create! It's just a sweet image, it just makes me smile, oh heck they all make me smile!

I have a blast each time I sit down and color in one of Mabelle's images, each image is so detailed and fun to work with. For this image I wanted to use bright colors and something that would match the birthday feel to this image, so I pulled out my American Crafts Confetti decorative paper and started pulling colors from it. I decided to use yellow and a shade of orange to match the balloons as the layering colors and aqua mist cs as my base. Plus, I also decided to play along with a brand new challenge from a new company, Ribbon Carousel at the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog!
I love playing along with challenges whenever I can, and when I heard that Ribbon Carousel was starting a challenge I just had to check it out! I don't know about you, but I am SO getting one of these babies, I have so many ribbon spools that are such a hassle to organize but the carousel seems like a fabulous way to solve that problem. Well, anyway...this week we are supposed to use the Ribbon Carousel as inspiration and for mine I went with the joy of getting one....or what I thought would be the joy of course! The one requirement is that you use ribbon, lace, ect just something that comes on a spool so I used this fabulous satin ribbon that I got from Michele!

Have you checked out the Whimsy and Stars Studio Store yet? Well if you haven't, what are you waiting for! You are going to love these fun images, they all make me smile, I know they will do the same for you! I hope you have a wonderful day!
