Color Throwdown #279-Happy Birthday!!

Happy Wednesday Morning!! AND, Welcome to the next installment of colors for CTD... Lori picked the colors/inspiration this week...

Aren't the hat and mittens adorable!! Perfect for a baby card... just makes me want to do some baby shopping!! Which I have been browsing in the last few days!! Ha... not for me or my girls... for Bethany (youngest daughter's friend and a child that grew up at my house!)
'Kay my card.....

Playing with some new WPlus9 stamps and dies. Whole Lotta' Happy-Whole Lotta Happy and Happy Trio dies!

And another big welcome to our Guest Star Stamper this week.... Deanna Jean

Glad to have you both on board!!
Remember, if you don't have the exact colors, use whatever you have that's close...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun!  If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD279.  Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog.  

When you are finished with your creation, head over to the Color Throwdown blog to add your entry to the Inlinkz tool. 

Also, playing in the Wplus9 Happy Birthday Celebrations... add dimension... the base is popped up on foam dots, along with the Happy die cut and two of the balloons... as well, the twine adds some dimension!

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
