I already had planned to use Boutique Borders and colour them, and the 'it's your birthday' in Big News, with its spindly font, just seems to go together with those borders. It almost seems to be hand-drawn, don't you think?
I can't locate my Summer Starfruit marker, so a sponge dauber dipped into the inkpad, has helped out, and I don't mind the look of it, outside the lines and all. The rest of the semi-circles were coloured using Stampin' Write Markers in the different hues. I've realised that it is quite hard to pick up the Blackberry Bliss, but its there on two of the striped half-circles at the top and the bottom (and of course the tiny flower from Something To Say).The 'woo-hoo' banners are from Big News, and have been easily hand-cut and attached with a narrow strip of Dimensional edging, to the hand-drawn flag poles.
It reminds me a little of licorice allsorts, yum, haven't had them for ages!
ColourQ set this great challenge, and I loved it!
