Herd it was your birthday

Good morning folks.
Well. did you enjoy the sun over the weekend? Here on the Welsh Marches we had the sun but alas also the wind, so no sitting in the garden in shorts and top like the rest of the country, fleece required for anything stationary! Still I got the washing done and a little bit of weeding in the garden.
I also managed to make a card for the new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
This week we would love to see cards on the theme of -


Here is my card.

This card was inspired by a friend who supports Leeds Rhino Rugby League Club, they play in blue and gold and their mascot is a rhino, obviously!
I found this cute rhino image and coloured his shirt to roughly represent the kit fussy cut him out and added a few balloons and attached then with strings through the mouth of the rhino. The sentiment was computer generated on plain card before I die cut the balloons and coloured them with Copics and white gel pen. A scrap of  bight blue NitWits DP was slotted behind the aperture and the whole mounted on a golden yellow base card. 
For more fab animal inspiration check out the rest of the DT here.
