Birthday card for a friend!

This card just fresh off my work space was made for a stamping friend who's birthday is coming up. I wont give away too many details or else she'll pick up it's for her...if she reads my blog! *rolls eyes* I'm not sure she does...but just to stay on the safe side I'll keep her a secret! *wink* I know she has friends who do read my blog! Tongue Out
I used yesterday color challenge over on SCS and today's sketch! I don't use these colors around this time...more like around say...HALLOWEEN! LOL! But hey, I like challenges! The colors to use were get this~Orchid Opulence, Pumpkin Pie, & Certainly Celery! Fun huh? LMBO! I just love the outcome of the card because of all the "touchable" thingies and the texture!!! I got my new Cuttlebug folders that just came out about 2 weeks or so ago and I JUST broke in the Swiss Dots folder!!! SO MUCH FUN!!! I tried to mimic off everything on the card...from the dots to the balloons! The only "off" thing is the gingham ribbon...lol. So...whadda you think? Thanks for looking!
