Time for another Just Us Girls challenge

Plus my time as a guest at Just Us Girls.
 The challenge this week is colors.  I was also so inspired by that yummy lollipop and those fun colors.
 Because the inspiration photo looks so much like a party, I went with a birthday theme.  
 To use some of the colors, I used a paint brush swipe stamp from Avery Elle and just inked it several times with Distress Ink.  I first stamped the words "happy birthday" using white ink and white embossing powder.  The embossed lines acted as a resist as I stamped the inks over that making the words pop out.  I wanted a very simple look but I did need to add a balloon which is a stamp from Simon Says Stamp.  
Be sure to check out the rest of the teams cards at Just Us Girls and play along too.
This also fits the Curtain Call challenge of Celebrate.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
