No January Blues!

Happy 2020 everybody!

Pantone have released their colour for 2020 - 'classic blue' - so I have gathered a few bits and bobs together to make a card in the next few days inspired by this beautiful colour.

However no January blues for today's card - I've gone very colourful!

It's my Mam's birthday on the 3rd January and she likes bright and bold rather than pale and pastel so I've used an Anita's decoupage cake image with some rainbow striped backing paper. The card is very large - 7in x 7in - so it will really stand out! I've created the greeting in Publisher and added some tiny yellow gems as flames on the candles to add an extra bit of sparkle.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

Watercooler Wednesdays #252 - anything goes
A Bit More Time To Craft #107 - anything goes
The Crafters Cafe - something beginning with 'c' (cake)
A Perfect Time To Craft January - anything goes
