Birthday Monkey

Hello and Happy Saturday! Today a new challenge has been set at Catch the Bug:

BRIGHT COLORS & FLOWER SOFT

What is Flower Soft you ask? Well, take a look at the balloon:

All nice and fuzzy. If you check out the Catch the Bug blog, you will see many other examples of how this can be used. It was my first time, and I rather like the effect!

(Edited to add close up of texture)

I initially started out hoping to make a card for a friend who's turning 40....but it looks more like a card for a kid turning 4. So I think I'll save this for Rhys since he'll be turning 4....in NOVMBER! Woo-hoo, still ahead of the game on my cards!

So pull out your bright colors and join us this week at Catch the Bug! And have a GREAT Memorial Day weekend - thank you to all who have bravely served our country!!

This will be entered in the following challenges:
