CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #7

It's Friday!! YAY! Let's get to our CAS-ual Fridays Challenge, shall we!?

Our sponsor:
 
What is color block and how do yo use them in a card,  you may ask? You can basically use a few color combo and design your own color block. You can use strips of paper, make your own block with spraying, masking...LOTS of possibilities! You can check THIS for more inspiration.
 The color block can be the background or part of the backdrop for your designs...the sky is the limit! Here's my take. I created my color block by using the old Hero Arts Postal stamp (aka Shadow Stamp) and stamped in the Citrus Color Box Chalk. The banners are a stamp from HA Life of a Party. The cupcake image and sentiment are from SRM Stickers.
belated birthday wishes
You can get some more inspiration by visiting the DT's fabulous work (see here)! They always knock my socks off! Please link up your card by Midnight, June22, Wednesday Eastern Time at CAS-ual Fridays.  I can't wait to see what you create! Thanks for stopping by!
