Curtain Call Colour Challenge: Act 25. Happy Birthday Rylee

Welcome back for another Colour Challenge- Act 25!!  This weeks featured  colours are Yoyo yellow, Only Orange, Green Galore, Pixie Pink and Whisper White, incase you have not heard the latest Stampin'Up news, all of this colours except for Whisper White will be leaving in the next catty :(. Stampin' Up is streamlining its colour range, taking away a whopping 30 colours, adding 5 brand new ones and bringing back 10 old favourites, if you want to find out more (like I did) check out Stacey's blog (out with the old and in with the new!).  It  will be a very exciting time when the new catty arrives, sad to see some of my old favourites disappear but exciting to use the new colours!
In more EXCITING news.......... Stacey has just posted 'The Lead' and 'The Show Stoppers' for Act 24!!  Congratulations to all the entries, The leader and The Show Stoppers, once again I was glad that I don't have to select them, all the entries are stunning, made with care and love.  I am lucky enough to have both Ange Kelly and Ange Muir as my crafting buddies, both of who keep me striving for excellence and on my toes!!!  NO, I did not have any input into their selection, I am not the only one that thinks their work is show stopping!!

Best get on with this weeks Curtain Call Colour Challenge, well you know the colours- there are stunning!!

These colours could not have come at a better time for me, DD Rylee's 7th birthday is this week, with a shortage of time it was good to be able to combine the two. I have used the SU's Pony Party, which I picked up in Canada while I was there last October, but was only mounted yesterday (it was a very necessary purchase at the time!)- lol!! A perfect time to make it's debut!  I am glad this card is finally finished, colouring in the butterflies, hearts and flowers seemed like such a great idea at the time, nearly sent me cross eyed!  I can tell you that it wasn't smooth sailing, I put it together so many ways and the end result is nothing like what it looked like in my head before it started- but that is usually the way it works for me.  Overall I am happy with the way it turned out, I hope Rylee likes it too!
Hope you enjoy my creation this week (you will need to look really closely to see the Green Galore!)
 Can't wait to see yours!

I have uses stickles on the wings, highlighted with stickles on the tail and the mane too.

The dots both below and on the bottom of the card have been highlighted with dimensional magic.
