Colour Throwdown #250 - Happy Birthday! Seize the Birthday July Linky Party Anything Goes

Hello Friends,
Where have I been?  Well I have been visiting the Scandinavian countries around the Baltic Sea for the last three weeks and having a very enjoyable holiday.  Will post some photo's soon. I hope you enjoyed the pre-scheduled posts from Pat Carr's Stamp Camp and Merry Monday Challenges while I was away.
Today I am posting a card I made for the Colour Throwdown's Fifth Anniversary Challenge, trying to get back into the groove and play with some of the challenges.  It's a very summery colour palette which I did find challenging until I made up my mind on the stamps, then everything fell into place.  Enjoy!

Stamps: S/U's Happy Birthday (R), Let's Party (R)
Card and Papers: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Crumb Cake
Ink: Melon Mambo, Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay, So Saffron, Copic RV09 Fuchsia
Finishing Touches: Pearls
Tools: Big Shot, Spellbinders Square Nestabilities, Sizzix Chevron E/Folder, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Blender Pen, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals, Tombow Multi Purpose Glue,
Thanks for visiting today. Happy Stamping!
