Joy Fold Birthday Card Sweet Sorbet

Hi Stampers,
This is the card I made for this weeks Thursday Challenge for DOstamper STARS - "Color My World".  The card was to be made with the Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding Colors.  All these colors are in this years free SALE-A-BRATION. Sweet Sorbet DSCS, so this paper was a PERFECT choice to use to make the card.  I just love the Sweet Sorbet Paper, and I'll will be so sad to see it leave us soon.  It's so pretty, and the colors are so soft and are beautiful to work with.  It really makes you think about spring coming, although....with more snow coming again, it's going to take more than beautiful cardstock to give me the feeling of spring.  Visit my other posting for this weeks Thursday Challenge for DOstamper STARS called Scalloped Spring Box, here is the link to that one too.
