Sunshine and Good Cheer...

Sunshine and good cheer in bright happy colors. This card is certainly a harbinger of warmer times to come. Ribbon is a key ingredient in this card, from the sassy orange bow to the side panel of multi-hued ribbons. Make your card warm, sassy and fun!

Created with:
Sentiment: Hero Arts
Embellishments: Zinnia tag, pearls, lots of ribbon
Tools: Oval punch, Corner Rounder

Do You Stack Up Challenge #6 - use ribbon

Where did my creative adventure take me today? Back to my grandmother's garden in California where the zinnias were always the brightest yellows and oranges.

Stay warm harted,

  5. All the other commenters have it right . . . .Happy is what this card makes you feel. And knowing you as well as I do, I applaud you stepping out of your comfort zone (soft, muted colors) to make this amazing, BRIGHT card. The orange makes me think of Syracuse. Funny what colors trigger in our memories. Here's hoping spring is on it's way! PS, love, love, love the ribbons!
