Clyde Birthday ~ Card For A Boy

Bugaboo is celebrating 5 years and there is a big party happening over at Catch The Bug Challenge Blog.  This is my card for day 3 (Monday).  The challenge is to take inspiration from the following photo. So what inspiration did I take from this gorgeous cake? Well..... first I decided to pull colors from the image.... I used blue, lime green and white for my main colors and in my image I used red, blue, lime green and purple.  My second choice of inspiration was the red balloon that Clyde is holding.... in the inspiration photo both the clown and the elephant are holding a red balloon.

Here is my card......

To create this card I started with a blue card base and added a piece of white card stock that I embossed using a Cuttlebug dot embossing folder and backed in lime green card stock.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens and backed it in both lime green and blue card stock.  I stamped my sentiment onto white card stock and punched it out using a real estate sign punch from EK Success.  I also backed that in lime green and blue. I also added dots under the "Happy Birthday!" using Spectrum Noir pens.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
