Retro Sketches #27 and ColourQ #152 challenge!

Hello everyone! Came across the Retro Sketches challenge blog and ColourQ blog this afternoon while brainstorming for an idea for my friend's birthday card as her birthday is around the corner.. and thought that the colour palette at colourQ this week was pretty challenging but was the right colours as my friend loved green! So this was the challenge at retro sketches #27 and colourQ #152...
And my take .. 
 I painted my cardstock to the "gumball green" as I didnt have that color for my cardstocks, but luckily i managed to get that colour roughly the first time(mixing dark green + light green + brown, bit by bit), but it seems a little dark after looking at this picture.... then some "basic gray" on the polka dots paper layered behind the kraft cardstock,  and an ink that looks like "bermuda bay" color so i inked the Happy Birthday image on it .. Hope I got the colors right! gonna continue doing up some other cards, have fun everyone!
