Festive birthday colors

Here's my card for today's color challenge over on SCS. They're such fun, bright colors, I immediately thought *birthday*. Although, these colors did give me a little bit of a fit! I started this card last night and after working on it for about an hour, just stopped and went to bed. I suppose I got a decent amount of sleep because I didn't seem to have a problem finishing it off this morning. I actually inked the entire flower stamp from Oh so lovely in so saffron, then went over the stem part with a turqoise marker (go back to 1st grade or those older ziploc commercials ~ yellow and blue make green! did I just date myself???) and went over the flower centers with a red marker. {man, I love my SU markers!} The scallop piece was inspired by Chat's work (check out her blog on the right).
Today is my middle son's 7th birthday so he gets to decide where we eat dinner. So no cooking for me, but I do have to make a cake. He asked for a Nintendo DS for his gift, but we told him if he got that, then we wouldn't throw a party for him (same offer we made our oldest) because those things are expensive!! Well, his Gameboy Advance SP has been misplaced for a few weeks now and we told him that if he didn't find it, he wouldn't get the DS. Well, I had already bought it! But I really don't think he's expecting it, so I'm hoping he'll be very surprised to get his gift this afternoon. Alrighty ~ thanks for stopping by!
