Birthday Boy

 It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.

The challenge this time is: All About B's (use anything that begins with B)
And here is my card for your inspiration:
I made this for my youngest nephew who is turning 4 next month!  I think the bright colors and patterns are perfect for a young boy's birthday.  The color combo was actually inspired by the turquoise die cut star.  I had a bunch of them left over from some baby shower decorations and was looking for a way to use them.  One down, a bunch to go!  So, I had one pad of paper that had some turquoise prints (which I didn't end up using) and others that coordinated with them.  The turquoise ribbon (vertical strip) and the copper star were also left overs from the shower.  I thought some black accents would help the colors pop, so I added a black die cut "4" and some black pearls (I finally finished up the pack of them which I have had for a looooong time).  On the inside I added several different sentiments and stamped them in colors that match the papers on the front.  I also added another of the turquoise stars and a last remaining copper glitter star to the inside.

I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.  And make sure you hop over to the Di's Digital Designs blog to see what the rest of the team has made for this challenge.

Stams: Di's Digi Stamps "Party Boy Bear" digi; CAS-ual Fridays "Woot! Woot!" sentiment on front and "Shenanigans" inside sentiments
Dies:Spellbinders "Classic Circles, large"; Stamps of Life star flip card die; Verve stars (glittery copper stars); PaperTrey Ink numbers border die (#4)
