HIMCR 347 spring colors theme for April 7

Rainbow sherbet explosion!!! A spring color theme challenge for week 1 of April!

Isn't this a festive and vibrant mix of colors and patterns for April 7-13, 2018!?!?!!!

The inside section of the card was kept simple with another section of the rainbow circles print paper (Grafix) stamped with the message to "celebrate".

HIMCR or Hiding In My Craft Room's badge and blog post link:

This week's prize and digital image sponsor for the design team is Crafty Sentiments Designs. HIMCR's blog post will give a link to CSD plus all the guidelines and details for participating as well as the rest of the design team's inspiration creations.

My card's layout is my interpretation of this sketch from Page Maps that was shared with the Facebook group 100 Pattern Papers Challenge:

Henry=digital image available from Crafty Sentiments Designs; 1 of 3 used by the DT:

Markers were used on most of the Henry image; peach crayon was used for his skin tone

The pennants/flag/ribbon tails sections almost look like party hats sitting in front of a crown but still part of the HB (happy birthday) theme. This card is super full of whimsy and charm. I will also link this to AHB 4 (Always Happy Birthday blog month of April challenge):

More crafting therapy to do! :) Any type of practical art or fine art is such a soul-lifter for me. I don't have children; nor pets; but we do have neighborhood domestic and wild rabbits that visit our yard especially these two--Charlene (two-tone brown) and Midnight. We've lived in our neighborhood for 3 months shy of 2 years and were told that the previous year to that someone who had 12 domestic rabbits released them to go free when they moved away. We are blessed to have these 2 as frequent visitors:
