Inkspriations Colour Challenge #18

I've had the best weekend just relaxing and spending time with my family and even STAMPING!! I needed to make 4, YES FOUR!! Birthday cards ready for this week and so with that in mind I jumped on my computer for some inspiration for colours, layouts and the like!
My first port of call was the lovely Keesh for her latest Inkspirations Colour Challenge.

I have to say that when I pulled out the card stock ready to create I was a little....ummm how can I say it.... taken a back... at the way they looked together, I really wasn't impressed and wondered how on earth I was going to pull them off!!! Thankfully as I began it all came together and my mind was changed to "YAY these can really work!!"
I've wanted to play more with my new Sale-A-Bration sets, how cute is that cake!! I love the Frames with a flourish too so with keeping it simple this is how it turned out!

The cake is coloured with blender pens and then I added some extra detail with the marker directly.
Watch out for my 2nd card which I'll post tomorrow

I really love this card, especially the frames with a flourish stamped to the left of the little cake!! I think you have created a great balance with the colours!
