Challenge -- Freshly Made Sketches #100!

Well my frustration level is at an all time high today!  I have been trying to enter this Challenge for 2 days now and have had nothing but trouble with my photo editing software!   I purchased a new laptop a couple of weeks ago and try as I might this new Windows 8 is just driving me nuts!   I also got the all new and not so improved Microsoft office.  This new software is lacking in one major area, Photo Software!  I used to use and love Microsoft Picture Manger, it is now gone and I miss it A LOT!  I have finally settled on Corell Paintshop and it seems to be getting the job done, there is a learning curve but it's coming along.  

Ok enough ranting!!!   Lets get to the Challenge. 

This week is FMS 100th sketch!  I have been living and breathing Christmas, Halloween and Thanksgiving in my craft room lately so Wedensday I took a break from all of that and made some Birthday cards.   Below in one of the cards I made and I just love the colours and fun of it all.

Ok so I admit I might have gotten a little carried away with the editing.  It's a bit dark but I will work on that for next time!

This card was made using the Birthday Basics DSP.  I got all of the great rich colours from this paper.  I used Very Vanilla for the base and Bermuda Bay for the first layer. Then I used Raspberry Ripple and Crisp Cantaloupe for my accent colours.
