Dream Valley Challenges: Carefree CAS card

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Its new challenge time at Dream Valley Challenges and this time our theme is 'Happy Birthday'. I decided to carry on my CAS experiment and came up with this card. I used the Stampin' Up inks I won with stamps from my stash, names escape me I'm sorry! I inked the slightly yellow/green colour first and then stamped the blue colour on top but slightly off centre to give a shadow effect.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
CASology: Up
Card Makin' Mamas: No Patterned Papers
Crafty Katz: Anything Goes
Creative Moments: Things with Wings
Addicted to Stamps: Addicted to CAS
2 Sisters: Anything Goes
My Time to Craft: CAS

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments :-)
