LSC 25 Happy Birthday

Happy Friday everyone- its the end of the week and time for another Loonie Stampers Challenge!!!

This week was Wendy's pick, boy were these colours a challenge!!! I like a challenge though- this is what I ended up with after 3 failed attempts!!!
For some reason I could not get the brown in there easily so I used a polka dot Prima!!! Its a shame when the awesome colour map is better than the card huh????
Feel free to play along and link up your creation in the comments- we love to see them!!!
Go check out my fabulous Loonies
Thanks for stopping by!!
Deets: Cardstock, Paper, Stamps, Ink: Papertrey, Prima Flower and SEI button
