Birthday party No. 2

Here is the second card for this afternoon, nothing like designing and creating at the last minute.  These colours are just divine and remind me that Spring is definitely on the way.  I was outside just before and our neighbours star jasmine is full of buds so that wonderful perfume will be with us soon.

This is for a little girl in my daughter's class, who is actually turning 8, but she is incredibly mature and intellegent, and a nice young lady.  She is quite gregarious hence the BIG and BOLD (and busy) card.  So by the time I had sorted the flowers out, the sentiment had nowhere to go,  it's peeping out of the corner.

Edited to Add:  I have just noticed that this card fits into the latest Ribbon Carousel challenge

See if I can get card No. 3 done today.
