Colorful of ideas

A card with an image by LOTV.

She is a darling. Maisie sitting pretty.

The adorable rainbowy* "Happy Birthday" sentiment can be found here

I found the balloons, pen, sun and dotty border in various magazines. 

The floral background is actually an old card, which I have "upcycled". The floral painting was made by a mouth painter named Francis Camille. You can find cards by the Mouth and Foot Painting Artist Association here

I have submitted this card to the following challenge:
Creative Corners: Child's play
Creative Fingers: Anything goes
Dis Digi Design: Birthday
JellyPark Challenges: All about the kids 
PollyCraft Challenge: For the kids
Robyn's fetish challenge: Must use yellow, blue and red
Stamp and Create: Birthdays 
Stampin' for the Weekend: Colours of Summer
SweetPea Stampers: Fantasy
Top Tip Tuesday: Tip: if you zoom in on my card, you will notice that I have cut out the small black lines to the balloons and that I have cut out the tiny grass. My "secret" is to use a pair of nail scissors. The bend which nail scissors often have helps you cut closer without cutting too much. Nail scissors are very helpful for paper-crafting and paper-piecing. 
Whimsical Designs: Something old, something new 
(I have upcycled an old floral postcard and made it into a new card, with my new image Maisie)

*It's possible rainbowy isn't actually a word, but I think it should be. On the other hand I wouldn't want "Regnbågig" to be a word in my own language, so maybe I should stop messing with yours. Lol.
