Bright birthday

Today I have one very bright card to share. I just had to make something bright after the snowy Easter. I don't remember the last time it snowed on  this time of the year. I think someone made a mistake and replaced the weather of Christmas and Easter :o)
Actually... Idea to make a card with bright colors is from  Paper Makeup Stamps Digi Makeover Challenge #31 this week challenge - bright colors :o) The digi image I've used is called Moody for Rock from their shop. This image is demanding an umbrella :o) Don't you think so? :o) I found three challenges with the theme of April Shower. Seems it's poplar.Inky Impressions ChallengesPaper Playtime - Challenge #71 and Crafting For All Seasons. My card follows the sketch #SSS42 from Sweet Stop Sketches - sss #153. I rotated it a bit and you have to use your imagination to see the sketch behind it but it is there :o) Because I used a Spellbinder Nestabilities Lacey Circles to the card base I'll enter it to  Paperplay Challenges - shaped card. I also played some bingo :o) Allsorts Challenge - week 149 - Color bingo (pink, yellow, blue and also pearls, purple, blue). And one more challenge in Love to Create Challenge - Challenge #10 - Birthday.

I mentioned some things used on the card. Here are rest of the stuff :o) Umbrella is made by me. First digitally on computer but I didn't like the pink color. Luckily I printed out one umbrella with just an outlines. So I colored pink parts with regular water base felt marker and pink atYouSpica glitter marker and some dots with Pergamond White gel pen. Girl is colored with water base felt markers and water brush and also atYouSpica glitter markers - pink, yellow and turquoise. Butterfly gems are from my stash. Also used Ranger Glossy Accent on few yellow juicy drops and Stanger Pearl Paste - pearl white. 
I was a bit disappointed that nestabilites didn't cut through two piece of card stock but now I like that the front part of the card has a lacy border and back side has only a imitation of it. To secure that the little pieces don't fall out, I covered the back of it with Glossy Accent :) Almost forgot... I also used Ranger Distress ink - Broken China
Inside of the card is also decorated, but batteries of the camera run out of the power before I could photograph it. I'll try to make some more pictures tomorrow. So sorry!

Edit: 11th April 2012
Here is a picture of the inside of the card as promised :o) It is very simple but I like it. Butterflies are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and butterflies from FoliaVarioustamp Summerbreeze set.
