Colorful Birthday Challenge!!

Good Evening Friends :)

Hoping everyone is enjoying this Friday Evening. I'm happy that it's the weekend! YIPPEEE!

I'm also happy that I got to play some more today - and work on PTI's Over the Rainbow Challenge. This is for a chance to win a WHOLE YEAR worth of Cardstock! How awesome is that?!?! I figure I'd give it a go. Here are the rules:















My nephew Matthew turned 6 today!! How time flies. Seemed like just yesterday he was born...wow. His birthday party is tomorrow and I needed a card...so I decided it would be a birthday card. Then what? I looked at the colors posted on Nichole's blog, and liked the circles, so I decided to stick with that...

I added a LOTS of dimensionals on the back, each circle is on varying 'levels'. The red has one layer, the green 2, and the focal image 3, it really pops. It needed a little something more - so I added the ribbons in the background, but didn't want to do a 'bow' since it's for a boy. I have to say, I love this color combo - and I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.

What are YOUR plans for the weekend??? I'd love to know. Hope it's a great one!!
