It's a Coloured Birthday Celebration

I found one of my favourite colour combinations over at
Colour Throwdown and just had to play.
Also at As You Like It their challenge is to
Make a card for your
Favourite Occasion and
Explain Why.
I think it is rewarding when you can make a
Birthday Card for someone special in your life
who is celebrating their Special Day.
So this time it is BIRTHDAY!
I am hoping to make another with my other favourite.
(not saying what it is) 

In the process of making this card I had chosen
one of my favourite stamps for this challenge
but when I went to get a stencil
I went a totally different way.
I decided to get my bokeh stencil out and play with that
inking randomly with Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers
and SU Melon Mambo. They go so well together.
Funny how this technique isn't quite so popular
now as there are always new ones to try.
I used 2 other stencils in the background.
I am hoping I can finish the card I originally started
in time before the challenge ends.
I recently bought this Happy Birthday die and thought
it perfect to place in front using the 3rd colour.
It is from Nina's Things.
I decided to mute the colours by adding a sheet of
patterned vellum on top. Liked that it had circles in white
adding to the effect.
Finished off with coloured sequins.

So that's it for now.
I do have another card scheduled for later today
so you get a bonus with 2 postings....
Thanks for dropping by
