Happy Birthday for Color Hues #17 and The Paper Players

 Hello friends.  I had to think of what I wanted to do for Color Hues red & orange challenge.  I thought about flowers and which ones I could use but I couldn't decide on any of them.  I decided to use this cute teddy and balloons from Simon Say Stamp Party Like a Panda.
ETA: Yea, my card was chosen as one of the Cuts Above at The Paper Players.

I stamped all the images then cut them with the matching dies.  I colored them with SU Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Blends.  I did use a very lt. Crumb Cake touch for the party horn but it is considered a neutral.  I embossed the panel with SU Brick & Mortar EF and mounted it on a Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Frame die cut.  I mounted the images with foam tape and stamped Birthday in black and fussy cut around it and added foam tape to the right side only and glue to the part over the balloon strings.  I was really pleased with the final result.  It will be going to a little one at church.
I will link to The Paper Players theme challenge - Cards for Boys.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
