A Guest in the Studio!!!

TGIF!!!!  Good morning!!!  As promised, here is the newest Wild Card Colour Challenge...for those of you new to my blog, here's the post that describes my self made challenge and how it came about.  When my son was up visting a few weeks ago, he would come and hang out in the studio while I made a card or blogged.  My basket of PTI colours was right beside him, so I asked if he would draw the next WaCCCky set of colours. 
So what did he draw?  A fabulous set of colours...what a good son!!! LOL  These are right up there with something the lovely Dawn McVey would use :)  I had a couple of different ideas for these, but this Happy Birthday card is what came out.
Eeek...I used my goto fav card sketch again...but added a double border punch to change things up!!  I love the way it turned out.  The red border is made with a jumbo ek success punch I found at Michaels.  The green arrow is a brad I picked up at the Dollar Store!!!  Love it!!  Let me know if you try these colours...I would love to see what you come up with...have a lovely, lovely Friday :)

what's in it?
stamps: pti say it with style
ink: versafine onyx
paper: pti cream, hibiscus burst, poppy; October Afternoon dp
accessories: ek success jumbo punch, su scallop punch, pti ribbon and button, thread, $ store brad; corner chomper

*swoon* what a truly fabulous card, Diva! Love the layout and those colours, well, what a great son you have! Jake obviously has his Diva Mom's sense when it comes to colour combos! Couldn't you get him back every weekend to pick a new combo?! LOL!
Hugs,
