Happy Birthday.....{MCT Designer Challenge}

Morning Everyone!
 Hope you all are having a great week so far!
Boy is it flying by for me...Another day and it is the weekend!!!! 
Anyways it is time for another 
My Creative Time Designer Challenge!!!
Today's challenge is to use the photo below for your project...
 You can use the picture or the colors or combine both for your project.
I ended up using the colors to make a birthday card for my Father-in-Law.
Here is my inspiration.....
I love the bright colors that this paper pad has and it is a perfect match to the color challenge picture.  I used one of my favorite dies...the Bunch of Fun Circles as my starting point for my card and then worked the rest of the card around that.....layering 2 of the circles for my sentiment focal point. Both the "Happy" and the birthday are from the Happy Thoughts set and I used the new release Trio  Stitched Banners to stamp the birthday onto. A fun patterned balloon from the Stitched Party Die tied with some Totally White Trendy Twine and some enamel dots finished off my card.
