Happy Birthday Sweet Friend

Happy Monday Everyone!
It's a happy day for me because I was finally able to participate in some challenges again. Somehow I have gotten myself away from them so it was nice to craft something from inspiration given to me :)
I actually was wandering around the internet and getting lost in all of the wonderful projects out there and found a new challenge blog. It's called "Just us Girls" and it looked like lots of fun so I just had to try it. The team has a different type of inspiration each week so of course I couldn't pass it up :)
This weeks inspiration is a "photo inspiration" challenge. I loved the colors in the photo and here is my take on what I see. 
The pattern paper is from Authentique "Gathering" with some black and SU baja blue cardstock. My bird is a stampin up builder punch and the sentiment comes from a Taylored Expressions set "pennant parade"
There are still a couple more days to play if you want to give it a try yourself.
Thanks for stopping by my crafty place!
