Crafty Creations Challenges - 323

Hi Everyone,
Today is the start of our new challenge over at Crafty Creations Challenges - 323.  The theme of our challenge is Use a Number. Well the first thing that came to my mind was a birthday card and I decided to make one for a young child.

I thought the number 2 was perfect for the balloons. 

The sponsor for our current challenge is 

And they have the Cutest digital images and a great selection.
Hope you check them out

Let me show you how this card was assembled

I started out with designer paper that I cut to be the panel on the purple card base.
I loved the flowers and the swirls and that became my inspiration, 
but I wanted to add a little more purple.

So I hand cut some curved pieces out of purple card stock that I had in my saved papers. 
So there was some of the extra purple I wanted

And I attached those curved pieces to the card front.

Next I wanted to have 3-D  flowers on the card. 
I had just picked up some white flowers in the bargain bin at Michael's,
however and they were just one size and they were white.

I sponged orange ink on the flowers and cut the petals on some of the flowers
 to make some of the flowers smaller, 
After looking at this card for a while I decided there was just too much orange, 
so I used a small flower die and made some purple flowers to tone down all that orange. 

All of the flowers have been placed over the flower images on the paper. 

Next I colored my Cute As A Button image and fussy cut him out. 
I added some feathers to the edges of Huey. (Not sure if you can see them.)
I also gave the balloons some dimension and added the number 2 on them.
Added the Happy Birthday sentiment to the top - and that finished the card.

Here is a closer view of this cute digi. 
I colored him with colored pencils and blended it out with gamsol.
