Bold Brights Birthday!

Happy Thursday! Hello, 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog!  I'll have a link to it as soon as it's live...that's 2 pm ET.  Now onto the real reason for your visit. ;)  It's time for another UDI Inspiration Challenge! Here is the picture Maria chose for us today. Robert's birthday was Tuesday, so I used the picture as inspiration for his card. I used the colors and the theme. Matches light birthday candles...birthday card...get it? LOL Anyway, on to the card. 

Since Robert turned 40, I just had to make his card extra fun!  ;)  I used lots of retiring Bold Brights colors... Brilliant Blue, Only Orange, Glorious Green, YoYo Yellow and Lovely Lilac.  The other colors are sticking around...Real Red and Tempting Turquoise.  The card base is Real Red and the next layer is Whisper White run through the Big Shot in the Square Lattice embossing folder.  The color-blocked squares are layered on to another piece of Whisper White so I could get them straight.  The images and sentiment are from Party Hearty.  I used lots of fun punches, too...the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch, the 1 3/4" Circle Punch, the 3/4" Circle punch, the Word Window punch and the Modern Label punch. 

You can see what all the team members created for you today by heading over to the UDI blog.  Before you go, let me know what you think of my Bold Brights Birthday card!  :)
