JAI 248 colour challenge - Balloon bash birthday

 This week's challenge at Just add ink is a fun colour challenge using these colours.
 
It's an interesting combo that works for either guys or girls I think. I've never used them together until now but I think they played together nicely. This is what I came up with:
The fun sentiment is from the new Balloon Bash set, stamped in navy & razzleberry. I made my own striped background DSP in the challenge colours using the brush tip end of my Stampin' Write markers. It's far from perfect but I think it works well with the handwritten look of the sentiment font. The panel is attached to the front of a z-fold card base (always tricky to photograph). You can see it better here.
I repeated the stripe on the inside of the card & added a sentiment in a coordinating font (Age Awareness set).
 
I think this card could work for lots of people - girls, guys, teens. What do you think?
Thanks for visiting & do have a go playing along with the challenge. Would love to see what you create. Until next time,
Inky wishes, Di

I love the handmade DSP - if you hadn't of said you made it yourself I would have guessed it was a retired or MDS one! Great card!

I can't believe you made that striped paper, its amazing and the lines are so straight! You must have a very steady hand. Brilliant design too!

This is an awesome card Di and I love that you created that DSP! I would not have known if I hadn't read that, it looks like printed paper!
