Happy Birthday - CTD#375

Hi there, friends!  It's time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #375.  Joan has got some fun colors for us to create with and we hope you'll play along.
For my card I used the MFT stamp set Adorable Elephants to create a birthday card.  I used this week's CTD colors and the Retro Sketches Challenge #197 for my layout.  I started out with a white card base, added a daffodil delight panel which I stamped with my sentiment and a horizontal strip of doodlebug designs paper.  Next I die cut a square and scallop mat and sponged the square with aqua mist ink stenciling a cloudy sky and added a die cut hill.  Once that was done I die cut, stamped and colored my images using Copic markers and added them to the little scene, adhering my elephant and kite with foam tape.  As a finishing touch I added some yellow stickles to the flower centers.
For more inspiration, check out the design teams' blog links below OR you can go to the Color Throwdown blog for details on how to play along and you can see all the sample entries in one location.
